Stabilising regional development through re-migration? A theoretical concept and an empirical case study in East Germany. Migration is an important channel for the transfer of human capital. A growing emphasis has been placed on re-migration as a possibility of re-gaining human capital. The paper aims to critically review theoretical approaches to re-migration and introduces a multi level research concept. This concept has been implemented in an exploratory case study on the effects of re-migration in East Germany. The paper presents selected results with respect to human capital transfer and gives an outlook on the possibilities to apply the concept on a quantitative level.

Keywords: Re-migration; human capital; regional development; East-Germany
