Reentry-A review of the literature
International Journal of Intercultural Relations , Volume 34 - Issue 1 p. 1- 21
Despite numerous publications on expatriation, the theme of cross-cultural reentry (its course, impact and features) still remains largely neglected and underestimated in the sojourner's transition trajectory. At the same time, available empirical investigations point to a number of substantial concerns, which affect the psychological wellbeing, social readjustment and cultural identity of returning individuals. The significance of these concerns strongly suggests that reentry should become an issue of the highest priority to both sojourning individuals as well as people managing the reentry transitions of travellers. This article attempts to systematize the available reentry literature, its strengths and limitations and strives to provide a tentative agenda for future research.
