RE: Your future repatriation to SA

Hi Gareth,

I enjoyed reading your article on the Homecoming Revolution’s website and thought I would get in touch on your blog – hope you don’t mind :)

I have just completed my Masters degree in International Human Resources Management at the London School of Economics and currently writing a dissertation about South African expatriates returning home after living in the UK. Therefore, I am interviewing South African (future) returnees to get a better understanding of their experiences and reasons for moving back.

The overall goal of my dissertation is to suggest policies that could attract skilled migrants back to SA and I would really appreciate the opportunity to discuss your thoughts. The “interview” will last less than 30 minutes and can be done on Skype (preferably) or over the phone. Please let me know if you are interested so that I could set it up over the next few weeks :)

Thank you in advance,
Chloe
