As geopolitical crises unfold and the world turns its attention to the movement of people across borders, management scholars endeavoring to inform business and policy must open new lines of inquiry if they are to maximize impact. In this Guidepost, we argue for three important avenues that deserve special attention: transformation in directionality and geographic spread of global migration patterns; human rights among under-researched migrant populations; and working from anywhere, in automated workplaces and with artificial intelligence. These critical research pathways require engagement in conceptual cross-fertilization and inclusion of practitioner, policy and human rights experts in the process of knowledge generation.
