Abstract

Brain Drain is an integral part of globalization, and a significant challenge for least developed countries undergoing processes of modernization. Traditionally, Brain Drain has been seen to zero sun game that makes the rich richer, and the poor, poorer. Globalization has led to increased international demand for skilled labor. Brain Drain suggests an unequal distribution of advantages and disadvantages of global migration. However, this unequal distribution could effectively be reverted if immediate action is taken, challenges to host and source countries are identified, and policies are adopted to revert its negative effects.
