Expats

Globally, the number of expatriates hovers around 3% of the world's population. Really a lot of people!

Schools for foreigners appear then when there are enough expatriates in the same area who want their children to be educated in their reference system... to eventually facilitate their return.

The expats are not, strictly speaking, immigrants; they are transients. Official or unofficial ambassadors, specialized workers, traders, adventurers, soldiers, students... they are not tourists either; they are here for a reason that is not vacation. All this is in transformation: the new nomads, workers or students, settle everywhere as soon as the Internet is available. Do they claim expatriate status when their homeland is the Internet? They are at home everywhere. Finally, they never really leave; they connect to everything.
