The world of the 21st century should gear up to move into a global ‘skills paradigm’. It is in the interests of all—including those in advanced stages of development to recognize that liberalization of the mobility of skills is essential. Compelling forces of demographics, technological advancement, and rise in the number of in-situ services—all require skills to be portable. By skills we mean not just high skilled migrants, but also semi-skilled and low-skilled migrants. This chapter also discusses the problems that the global economy faces and will continue to face in the ‘de-territorialisation of skills’. Through case studies, we attempt to establish the importance of portability of different levels of skills. The world needs firm and unapologetic advocates for the democratization of development through a transformative shift to an international regime for skills.

Keywords:   skills paradigm, in-situ services, portability, de-territorialization of skills, technology, innovation, factor productivity, health care, agriculture, localization
