This article analyzes how immigration controls introduced under the policy "war on terror" are restricting the flow of foreign researchers into the United States, and with other countries moving in on this pool of talent, will the balance of scientific power shift? Britain and Australia may be in the vanguard of the "war on terror" policy, but they do not share the U.S. administration's view that foreign scientists should be viewed as potential terrorists. To government officials and university administrators alike, they are seen as valuable assets. This is especially true of fee-paying students, who bring a welcome influx of funding into the two countries' universities.
