Hello fellow Expats !

If you moved abroad as a couple, then this concerns you.

A survey conducted by Expat Communication in 2015 on couples and expatriation found a stark result: in 80% of expat couples, both spouses wish to work, yet only 40% actually do. How many disappointments and strains have arisen due to this situation, but also, how many potential improvements !

To find solutions, we need more facts:

> >      A large number of respondents give greater legitimacy to this survey, shedding more light on this problem.
> >      A large sample size will also allow for precise statistics to understand the obstacles limiting dual careers and to identify the strategies which work country by country, and ideally city by city.
Ultimately, we will be able to measure in detail the impact of various factors on expat lives.
> >     With this in mind, we need your input and that of your network, to further enable expat dual careers and identify the main points for a successful expatriation.

For this reason, we have relaunched this project, to cover an even broader scope, relying on the support of our collaborators.

Do not delay, it takes 15 minutes to complete this survey...
By doing so, you contribute to enabling expat couples’ careers, including your own.
