Abstract The study will be a preliminary investigation focusing on the aspirations, ambitions and life experiences of highly skilled migrants in Doha. It is part of a larger project within which researchers from four academic institutions, three based in Qatar (Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, Qatar University, Georgetown University) and one based in the UK (Bath Spa University) work collaboratively and bring together three inter-related yet separate spheres of research: transnational migration, human capital and the attractiveness of employment in global cities such as Doha.
