This chapter is informed by research that examined the diverse pathways, practices and identities of skilled migrants over time and through space. All of the participants were tertiary educated, skilled and had lived in Australia at some point in their lives, although not necessarily on a skilled visa. Australia is viewed as a single site within a range of transnational connections, recognising contemporary mobility as a complex system of interactions rather than one-way permanent relocation. The phrase educated and skilled ‘mobile settlers’ is introduced to capture the diversity of experiences amongst migrants and to describe the practices of people whose life histories have been punctuated by a range of visa classifications and ‘multiple moorings’ of ‘various durations’ (Cohen, Duncan & Thulemark, 2015: 162).
