Abstract

Objective/Context: The main objective of this work is analyzing how national identity and the brain drain-brain gain transition could generate a greater sense of belonging and responsibility for the country's development within Colombian migrants in the United States. Methodology: Drawing on migration systems theory and through a statistical, historical, and casuistic review, this work aims at dissecting the various elements that have allowed the Colombian State to enhance the possible dominant factors of migratory return. Conclusions: The analysis of the Colombian migration system in the United States has not only represented the consolidation of a long data migration process, but it has also shown a diversified process in its institutions, flows, and strategies that have meant a success in its adaptation. Originality: It is expected that the reader has a reliable account of the migratory reality of Colombians in the United States and to provide a comprehensive and updated vision of the migratory panorama of Colombians in the country.
