Skills, Professional Regulation, and International Mobility in the Engineering Workforce. Migration Policy Institute. Matthew Dixon. July 2013.
Professionals, particularly in regulated occupations, often face significant obstacles gaining certification to work in other countries, finding it difficult to demonstrate the value of their academic and professional qualifications. This can result in both barriers to entering work and to international mobility. The report examines those barriers and reviews the skills and structure of the engineering workforce, the industry’s professional regulation, and international efforts to forge common standards.
