Brain drain and brain gain

Brain drain and brain gain both refer to consequences of migration for the host and sending societies in terms of the transfer of human capital. Brain drain involves the departure of a society’s high-skilled or well-trained individuals through emigration. Brain gain in turn refers to the phenomenon of such individuals contributing human capital to a host society, or eventually returning to their country/region of origin and bringing new skills or capital with them. These phenomena are also collectively known as ‘brain circulation’.

This topic includes literature on skilled migration, academic mobility, remittances, return intentions, transnationalism, and educational segregation.

The Punjabi diaspora in the UK : an overview of characteristics and contributions to India

Authors Rupa CHANDA, Sriparna GHOCH
Description
The recognition of diaspora contributions towards their home country through remittances, investments and networks has facilitated a shift in attitude and thinking regarding migration, from brain drain to “brain bank”, “brain gain”, “brain trust” and “brain circulation”. This shift in thinking is also evident in India in recognition of the manifold contributions being made by the Indian diaspora to the home country. This paper examines the historical and socio-economic characteristics of one important Indian diaspora community, the Punjabis in the UK and discusses the latter’s contributions to India and to its home state of Punjab.

Indian Human Resources Mobility: Brain drain versus brain gain

Authors Natalia BUGA, Jean-Baptiste MEYER
Description
India is a major source of migrants, especially of highly-skilled and well-trained workers. This paper attempts to show that even with a high number of Indian talents abroad, India – as well as destination countries – takes advantage of the resources generated by this population. Traditionally the flows of Indian professionals have been directed towards the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and other similar destinations. Recently, however, Western European countries are being selected as migration options. In this paper, the growing diversification of receiving countries is explained as a consequence of European immigration policies focusing on highly-skilled migrants, demographic trends which raise several questions related to labour shortages and, finally, the effects of the global economic crisis on mobility. The migration of highly-skilled Indians is analyzed and put in the context of globalization and the intensification of the knowledge-based economy. The paper shows that what has happened in India might stand as a win-win scenario with wider application where a brain drain may be converted into a brain gain.

Dynamic Wage Effects of Brain Gain and Brain Drain - Analyzing Changes in the Regional Concentration of High-Skilled Workers

Principal investigator Johann Eppelsheimer (Principal Investigator), Joachim Möller (Principal Investigator)
Description
Löhne werden nicht nur von den individuellen Eigenschaften von Arbeitnehmern und Arbeitgebern bestimmt, auch lokale Gegebenheiten spielen eine Rolle. Dabei ist insbesondere der regionale Anteil an hochqualifizierten Arbeitskräften von Bedeutung. Hochqualifizierte tragen zur technischen Weiterentwicklung bei und regen den Wissensaustausch an. Dadurch steigern sie nicht nur ihre eigene Produktivität, sondern auch die anderer Beschäftigter in ihrem Umfeld. Eine gesteigerte Produktivität hat wiederum höhere Löhne zur Folge. Innerhalb des Forschungsprojekts wird daher untersucht, wie sich der regionale Zuzug (Brain-Gain) und Fortzug (Brain-Drain) Hochqualifizierter auf die Löhne ansässiger Arbeiternehmerinnen und Arbeitnehmer auswirkt. Ob ein regionaler Brain-Drain durch einen gleich großen Brain-Gain ausgeglichen werden kann, hängt von unterschiedlichen Effekten ab: Einerseits bereichern Hochqualifizierte, die als Wissensträger neu in eine Region kommen, den lokalen Wissenspool in besonderem Maße, was für einen relativ höheren Effekt von Brain-Gain im Vergleich zu Brain-Drain spricht. Andererseits basiert der Wissensaustausch stark auf sozialen Netzwerken. Geht man davon aus, dass Wegziehende verhältnismäßig große Netzwerke verlassen und Zuziehende zu Beginn verhältnismäßig kleine Netzwerke vorfinden, könnten wiederum die Effekte durch Brain-Drain überwiegen. Im Zuge des Forschungsprojekts werden die genauen Effekte anhand von regionalen Mikrodaten mit ökonometrischen Verfahren bestimmt. Projektziel Das Forschungsprojekt untersucht Effekte auf Löhne, welche durch den Zuzug (Brain-Gain) und den Fortzug (Brain-Drain) von hochqualifizierten Arbeitern hervorgerufen werden.

Losses and Gains to Developing Countries from the Migration of Educated Workers: An Overview of Recent Research, and New Reflections

Authors Oded STARK, Simon C. FAN
Description
This paper synthesizes and extends recent research on “The New Economics of the Brain Drain.” In a unified framework, the paper shows that while recently identified adverse repercussions of the brain drain exacerbate the long-recognized negative impact of the brain drain, longer-term consequences turn the brain drain into the harbinger of powerful gains. These gains have been studied already in recent research, or merit attention in future research.

La migration hautement qualifiée de, vers et à travers les paysde l’Est et du Sud de la Méditerranée et d`Afrique subsaharienne. Recherche Transversale

Authors Rafik BOUKLIA-HASSANE
Description
Au cours de la décennie ’90, l’Algérie faisait partie des dix pays ayant connu les plus forts taux d’émigration des compétences au monde. Aujourd’hui, même si toute la documentation statistique nécessaire fait défaut, la question du brain drain et du rôle de l’émigration dans le développement du pays sont des sujets bien présents dans le débat public. Ce papier contribue à alimenter ce débat à plusieurs niveaux. Tout d’abord, il propose une présentation systématique du mouvement des compétences algériennes et de son évolution. Par ailleurs, il passe en revue certains facteurs susceptibles d’expliquer l’évolution du brain drain en Algérie ; une décomposition originale des causes du brain drain a également été effectuée afin de mettre en exergue la contribution de la pression migratoire et celle de la sélection positive à l’augmentation de l’émigration des compétences sur la période récente. Enfin, la note analytique aborde les conséquences de l’émigration des compétences sur la croissance économique de l’Algérie. In the 1990s, Algeria ranked among the top 10 countries in terms of its highly- skilled emigration rate. Today, despite insufficient statistical documentation, the brain-drain issue and the role of emigration in the development of the country are both much debated. This paper aims to contribute to this debate at several levels of analysis. First, we present the recent evolution of Algerian brain drain highlighting the role of destination countries. Moreover, an attempt to understand the causes of this phenomenon is provided through an original analysis of brain-drain push-factors, which helps individuate the relative contribution of 1) migratory pressure and 2) positive selection in increasing highly-skilled emigration flows. Finally, emphasis is put on the consequences of brain drain for economic growth in Algeria.

Highly-skilled Migration (Libya): Legal aspects

Authors Azza K. MAGHUR
Description
Libya, a country that gained independence in 1951, has known only two contradictory regimes: a monarchy from 1951-1969, and a revolution since 1969. With oil as its main source of revenue, and after ten years of UN backed-sanctions, in addition to a decade of public sector dominance, Libya suffers from both brain drain and brain waste. The active Libyan market of today, after its return to the international community, and given decades of economic and administrative instability, requires skilled and unskilled labour. Libya’s labour policies have always been motivated by politics. There has not been a labour strategy, and the need for skilled labour has been a constant in a rich country with only six million inhabitants.Libya today is country full of promise that offers opportunities to its own citizens. It is still, however, unable either to contain brain waste, or to stop brain drain, especially in the medical field. The private sector which has been reactivated after years of public sector dominance is hungry for labour and regulation is imminent. Economic activities, in infrastructure and building for example, need the labour market, private and public, to be properly regulated. La Libye, devenue indépendante en 1951, n’a connu que deux régimes opposés : une monarchie de 1951 à 1969 et une révolution depuis 1969. Avec le pétrole comme principale source de revenu, après dix ans de sanctions onusiennes, et une décennie de prédominance du secteur public, la Libye subit à la fois une fuite et un gaspillage des cerveaux. Le marché du travail libyen actuel requiert de la main d’oeuvre qualifiée et non qualifiée depuis son retour sur la scène internationale après des décennies d’instabilité économique et administrative. Les politiques de l’emploi libyennes ont toujours été motivées par la politique. En l’absence de stratégie de l’emploi, le besoin de main d’œuvre est une constante dans ce pays riche pourvu de seulement six millions d’habitants.La Libye d’aujourd’hui est un pays plein de promesses, porteur d’opportunités pour ses citoyens. Elle est cependant encore incapable de réduire le gaspillage des cerveaux et de stopper la fuite des cerveaux, surtout dans le domaine médical. Le secteur privé, réactivé après des décennies de domination publique, a faim de main d’œuvre et la régulation est imminente. Les activités économiques, dans les infrastructures ou le bâtiment par exemple, ont besoin d’un marché du travail, public comme privé, réglementé.

The Punjabi Diaspora in the UK: An overview of characteristics and contributions to India

Authors Rupa CHANDA, Sriparna GHOSH
Description
The recognition of diaspora contributions towards their home country through remittances, investments and networks has facilitated a shift in attitude and thinking regarding migration, from brain drain to “brain bank”, “brain gain”, “brain trust” and “brain circulation”. This shift in thinking is also evident in India in recognition of the manifold contributions being made by the Indian diaspora to the home country. This paper examines the historical and socio-economic characteristics of one important Indian diaspora community, the Punjabis in the UK and discusses the latter’s contributions to India and to its home state of Punjab. The evidence reveals that the NRI Punjabi diaspora in the UK is quite old, dating back to the colonial period. It is a heterogeneous community, divided by castes and sub-castes which influence the institutions through which its subgroups engage with the homeland. The secondary and primary evidence collected for this study indicate a wide variety of contributions economic, social, philanthropic, cultural and political. Some of the main sectors of contribution are health, education and rural infrastructure. However, the evidence also reveals that there is much greater potential for diaspora engagement and that large scale investments by the diaspora are deterred by corruption, an inefficient bureaucracy, lack of streamlined procedures and lack of supportive diaspora policies at the state and central levels. The study thus concludes that greater thrust is needed, especially at the state level to facilitate the Punjabi diaspora’s engagement with India and with its home regions and state.

Emigration of High-Skilled Individuals due to Short-Term Contracts

Description
This proposal presents a study of the EXODUS of exceptionally gifted individuals due to the increased utilization of short-term contracts. The primary objective is to study the impact of Italian labour market reforms, specifically those related to the regulation and utilization of short-term employment contracts, on the departure of skilled workers towards other countries, which typically offer more and better opportunities (brain drain). Theoretically, the utilization of short-term contracts could help increase labor force participation, employment, efficiency and labour market opportunities. However, if not regulated in integration with the specific institutional framework, short-term contracts might generate undesired effects. By promoting adverse selection, driving the better workers away from the mother country as the less productive workers take up short-term contracts, short-term contracts might actually increase the brain drain. The purpose of EXODUS is to investigate the validity of these concerns and to analyze the way short-term contracts affect the brain drain phenomenon. In particular, EXODUS will focus on investigating the employment condition and behavioral choices of a specific category of workers: young individuals with a high level of education.

Transnationality of Migrants: Enduring ties with the home country and integration in the host country

Principal investigator Herbert Brücker (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Bei dem Projekt handelt es sich um ein internationals Kooperationsprojekt mit 15 Partnern das im Rahmen der Marie Curie Actions Research and Training Activities von der Europäischen Kommission finanziert wird. Die Projektlaufzeit beträgt ab dem 1. Januar 2007 4 Jahre. Das Projekt setzt sich aus Forschungs- und Trainingsaktivitäten zusammen. I. Forschungsaktivitäten Das IAB beteiligt sich an zwei Aufgaben im Projekt: Remittances, the skill composition of migration, and social networks und Migrants integration, regional mobility, social and business networks, and trade. Im ersten Teilprojekt untersucht das IAB gemeinsam mit den Partnern von IRES die Folgen der Migration für Humankapitalinvestitionen und ihre Implikationen für die Qualifikationsstruktur der Migranten. Dafür wird ein Paneldatensatz mit Makrodaten herangezogen der von dem IAB gemeinsam mit dem IRES-Team aufgebaut wurde bzw. aufgebaut wird. Das IAB wird darüber hinaus Mikodatensätze wie die IAB-Beschäftigtenstichprobe den Partnern im Projekt zur Verfügung stellen bzw. bei der Arbeit mit den Partnern beraten. Im zweiten Teilprojekt wird das IAB die Effekte der regionalen Verteilung der Migranten über die Länder untersuchen: Die Determinanten und Ursachen der regionalen Konzentration von Migranten in prosperienden urbanen Regionen, die Substitution der regionalen Migration von Inländern durch internationale Migranten, die Lohneffekte der internationalen Migration in verschiedenen Regionen bei zentralen Tarifverhandlungen. Das IAB wird in diesem Teilprojekt mit dem CEPR-Team und der Universität Turin kooperieren. II. Trainingsaktivitäten Im Rahmen des Projektes wird jedes Jahr eine Summer-School für die Junior-Forscher in dem Exzellenznetzwerk sowie externe Teilnehmer durchgeführt. Die Organisation wird von den italienischen Partnern im Projekt übernommen, das IAB wird sich durch Vorträge und Lehrangebote an dem Programm beteiligen. Ferner wird jährlich ein internationaler Workshop durchgeführt, das IAB ist an der Vorbereitung beteiligt. Schließlich wird das IAB einen oder mehrere Junior-Wissenschaftler aus anderen EU-Staaten einstellen, die on-the-job qualifiziert werden. Projektmethode Das empirische Forschungsprogramm stützt sich überwiegend auf Panelregressionen mit Makrodaten. Makrodaten zur Migration, Qualifikationsstruktur der Migranten sowie Löhne und Beschäftigung nach Ländern und Regionen in der EU. Projektziel Die Analyse des Einflusses der Migration auf Humankapitalinvestitionen, Arbeitsmärkte und die Integration der Migranten."

Emigracja zarobkowa i powrót do kraju w doświadczeniach współczesnych Polaków. Studium socjopedagogiczne

Principal investigator Magdalena Piorunek ()
Description
Przez wiele lat Polska była krajem emigracji, krajem wysyłającym do innych krajów Europy Zachodniej. Kiedy Polska stała się członkiem Unii Europejskiej tylko trzy kraje otworzyły od razu swoje rynki pracy, były to Anglia, Irlandia i Szwecja. W 2006 roku polscy obywatele mogli podejmować legalne zatrudnienie w kolejnych krajach- Finlandii, Grecji, Włoszech, Portugalii czy Hiszpanii. Badania podjęte w niniejszej rozprawie dotyczą młodych Polaków pracujących za granicą. Jednym z problemów poruszonych w pracy jest próba odpowiedzi na pytanie czy wyjazd emigracyjny posłużył poprawie ich życia, Co znaczą dla nich emigracyjne doświadczenia? Czy są szczęśliwi i jak często odwiedzają rodzinę pozostającą w Polsce? Jaki rodzaj pracy wykonują na emigracji? I czy wykonywana przez nich praca jest zgodna z uzyskanym przez młodych emigrantów doświadczeniem? Kolejnym zagadnieniem poruszanym w pracy jest aspekt drenażu mózgów w odniesieniu do współczesnego zjawiska „cyrkulacji mózgów” i ich marnotrawstwa. Młodzi Polacy relacjonują w badanych, iż emigracyjny wyjazd spowodował, iż zminimalizowaniu uległy ich finansowe problemy, iż wzrosło ich poczucie sprawstwa. Przyjęta koncepcja pracy powoduje, iż jej struktura składa się z trzech części. W pierwszej (rozdział I i II) zawarto teoretyczne konstrukty opisywanego zjawiska. W drugiej (rozdział III) przedstawione zostały założenia metodologiczne projektu badawczego, w trzeciej zaś części (rozdział IV i V) - uzyskane drogą weryfikacji empirycznych wnioski i ich podsumowanie. Pierwszy rozdział przybliżyć ma, oprócz charakterystycznych dla XXI wieku kwestii związanych z globalizacją, także stricte teoretyczny - terminologiczny aspekt migracji międzynarodowych. Świat doby globalizacji oraz jego relacji wobec migracji międzynarodowych, został ukazany w kontekście społecznym, kulturowym i gospodarczym. Poruszono także kwestię transnacjonalizmu w migracyjnym wymiarze. Zważywszy na fakt, iż przedmiotem zainteresowania niniejszej dysertacji są migracje poakcesyjne, sporo miejsca poświecono także regulacjom związanym z polityką rynku pracy w Unii Europejskiej. Dokonano następnie przeglądu i charakterystyki ruchów migracyjnych, a także teorii migracji i jej faz. W kolejnej części rozważań, uwagę skoncentrowano na specyfice polskiej emigracji zagranicznej oraz migracji powrotnej, ukazując jej aspekt historyczny oraz dynamikę zmian. Całość wzbogacona została komentarzami płynącymi z najnowszych badań, które opisują trendy charakteryzujące współczesną poakcesyjna emigracje z Polski. Wybrane aspekty socjopedagogicznego dyskursu nad emigracją poakcesyjną uczyniono kolejnym elementem rozdziału. Zwrócono w nim uwagę na zjawisko deprecjacji kwalifikacji- ich marnotrawstwa, (jednakże wbrew potocznym opiniom) w kontekście swoistej życiowej zaradności, będącej wyrazem determinacji mającej na celu poprawę losu jednostek, bez względu na charakter podjętego przez nie zatrudnienia. W tej części podjęto się także rozważań na temat istoty, alarmistycznie opisywanego drenażu mózgów, w kontekście poakcesyjnej emigracji i tego, czy stanowi dla Polski i jej obywateli realne zagrożenie. Ponowoczesna migracyjna sieć wsparcia i jej nowa jakość w postaci blogosfery- jako „natychmiastowego panaceum na wszelkie migracyjne dolegliwości” to kolejne z omówionych zagadnieniem. Na koniec rozważań teoretycznych pochylono się nad kwestią i modelami polskich migracji powrotnych, ich konsekwencjami i wynikającymi z nich zagrożeniami. Trzeci rozdział posłużył przedstawieniu podstaw metodologicznych, przeprowadzonych metodą sondażu diagnostycznego (z wykorzystaniem złożonego z trzech części kwestionariusza ankiety) badań, których wyniki i analiza zaprezentowane zostały w następnych częściach pracy – w rozdziale czwartym i piątym - prezentując społeczno – demograficzny profil poakcesyjnego migranta. Część ta obejmuje analizę głównych motywów wyjazdu i powrotu, dynamikę biograficznych doświadczeń polskich migrantów, z uwzględnieniem takich aspektów ludzkiej biografii jak: -doświadczenia zawodowe, -struktura oraz funkcjonowanie rodzin migracyjnych, (z perspektywy emigranta) -struktura racji działania dotycząca różnych aspektów decyzyjnych w biografii migrantów, -asocjacje towarzyszące Polakom powracającym z emigracji zarobkowej, -trudności adaptacyjne podczas emigracji i po powrocie z niej, -struktura sieci społecznego wsparcia i pomocy społecznej w trzech perspektywach czasowych, w których funkcjonowali i funkcjonują emigranci. Ponadto istotnym elementem omawianej części jest ocena migracyjnych doświadczeń, dokonanych przez samych migrantów, będąca próbą bilansu migracyjnego epizodu i jego roli w życiu młodych reemigrantów. Rozdział IV przedstawia zatem wyniki, uzyskanych drogą empirycznych weryfikacji, badań. Ostatni rozdział niniejszej pracy przybliża podsumowanie wniosków będące finalnym efektem badawczych dociekań.
