On Oct. 26, 2010, Shahrukh Rafi Khan spoke on “Turning Pain to Gain.” His talk highlighted his research on the “brain drain” problem. While acknowledging that the “brain drain,” or the migration of highly educated persons from low- to high-income countries, shows no signs of slowing down, Khan nonetheless identifies individual, NGO and state non-force mechanisms currently underway that can lessen the pain for low-income countries. Khan goes further, proposing to make this process more systematic and effective—turning pain to gain. Khan’s findings are included in his new paper (PDF) on the issue.
