The pharmaceutical ecosystem in Basel, Switzerland, concentrates highly skilled professionals and their families into a small area, profoundly changing the local social landscape and transforming the lived experiences of those involved. Using a multidisciplinary approach to unpack the narratives of belonging at work and home, the author offers perspectives of self-discovery, personal growth, and corporate mobility. How can culture be understood, negotiated, and built through emotional capital and sensorial mobility? If you are looking to learn more about what to expect when moving as a family on international assignments or are keen to explore some typical aspects of life in Basel, the insights from this book will help you pick up strategies to start you on your journey.

"Shabih Zaidi explores the mobilities and biographies of managers at directorial levels and explores their lifeworlds and everyday lives. Corporate executive officers and their families are the subject of a study in which the otherwise often mentioned virtues such as curiosity and flexibility attributed to CEOs are contrasted with images of how to deal with their anxieties and stress. Such feelings affect family relationships in everyday life and deserve closer attention."—Prof. Dr. Jacques Picard, Philosophisch-Historische Fakultät, Universität Basel
