What is it about?
In this study, we distinguish multiple mobility root trajectories, namely work-related mobility, non-work-related experiences, early international exposure, inter-company or inter-industry movements and cultural proximity or distance between the home and host location of the expatriate, in order to analyse the patterns of mobility among a cohort of self-initiated expatriates (SEs) and conventional expatriates (CEs).

Why is it important?
Our results suggest that the two cohorts do vary in their international mobility patterns, especially relating to work and non-work-related mobility, early international exposure, cultural proximity/distance and inter-company and inter-industry movements.
