Résumé This project is part of the NCCR "On the move: The mobility-migration nexus" directed by prof. Gianni d'Amato.

It proposes to examine the daily strategies of families of international managers or diplomats who come to Switzerland for a limited time. How, on a daily basis, do they interact with their Swiss environment? Do they master the local languages, develop networks with long-term Swiss residents, or do they participate to local communities? Examining short term, highly qualified immigrants – an extreme case “new immigration” – this project has thus various goals: 1) on a theoretical level, to question the traditional criteria of psychosocial “integration”; 2) on an empirical level, to describe the specific modalities of adjustment of short term immigrants; 3) on a policy level, to make recommendations for a smoother adjustment of these families.
