Jennifer Gold is a PhD student in the Department of Geography, Cambridge University and was a visiting fellow at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University between January and April 2009. Her research examines the formulation and implementation of the UK government’s resettlement policy for former colonial scientists, with particular reference to forestry science. This paper examines the interconnections between decolonization and post-war ‘manpower resource’ concerns, situating resettlement within domestic debates on knowledge economy formation and Cold War geopolitics.
