This article focuses on the outcomes of expatriate assignments. It sets the topic in context. After summarizing the traditional view on expatriate outcomes, we argue that recent developments in the field suggest the need to build a more sophisticated and complex analysis on the topic that incorporates different perspectives (e.g. the organization, the expatriate, their co-workers and their families) and additional types of international experiences and organizations. We then present some difficulties in developing such an analysis.
