    The international migration of people, and the resulting interaction of diverse peoples in cities and workplaces, is increasing the world over. These intercultural encounters present both opportunities and challenges to individuals, to public and private institutions, and to societies as a whole. Asia is a major participant in these migrations, both as a provider and as a recipient of these population flows. Many countries in the West have substantial populations of Asian origin; many cities in Asia have increasingly large communities of Westerners; and many of these cities are experiencing the return of former migrants to their home societies.

    This book presents ideas and findings in four thematic sections. First is “Intercultural Relations and Social Integration”, in which some international experiences (to Western countries) of migration, settlement, and outcomes are recounted. A central question here is whether these other experiences can provide any insight or guidance for Asian societies as they become destination countries for immigrants.

     A second section, on “Cultural Competency in Workplace and the Social Environment”, shifts the discussion from a global purview to the workplace and the social environment in which careers are developed and managed. Here, the concern is specifically with the world of work, examining the many factors that promote (or impede) the successful integration of individuals into the workforce following migration. In a third section, “Socio-cultural Effectiveness and Emotional Adaptation”, the focus is more on the emotional life and personal adaptation of Asian and Western sojourners in cultures that differ from their own. One of the many factors that influence successful settlement is the emotional reaction of immigrants in response to daily experiences in their new society.

     A final section on “Understanding Asian Migration in Asia” takes up the issue of internal migration, which is a ubiquitous challenge in Asian societies. This rural-urban labor migration, and the consequent intercultural relations among peoples of differing ethnicity in major cities, is a topic of increasing concern for social stability in many Asian societies.(摘自〈Preface〉,歐美所研究員曾瑞鈴小姐)
