The volume examines the issue of brain drain in Central Asia. The chapters analyse the causes of brain drain and the methodologies of addressing it with case studies in the region. They also investigate various policies that could lead to brain circulation and eventually brain gain. The volume demonstrates that some of countries in the region are facing the problem of brain drain more than others and no action has been taken, therefore it requires immediate action by policymakers and economists. The volume is a useful addition to the scant literature dealing with brain drain policies for a sustainable economic development, and policymakers will find it useful in designing policies for achieving development policies. The volume will also be useful for higher degree research students, especially in the area of economic and sustainable development.

Nargiza Abdullaeva examines student migration phenomenon from Central Asia to Germany. In her research she combines inimitably three levels of analysis: micro level explores Central Asian students’ and graduates’ individual characteristics, their life courses before and during their studies in Germany, students’ return/non-return intentions after graduation in Germany and their motivations. Meso level deals with circular migration and social remittances’ transfer, and the macro level looks into policy mechanisms on the part of sending Central Asian republics and Germany as a receiving country. The findings reveal that the student migration serves as a realistic channel for the out-migration of highly qualified people (brain-drain) and that the brain circulation practically does not exist.

Focusing on the areas of politics, identity and education, this book looks at some of the most pressing and challenging issues that Kyrgyzstan faces in the post-Soviet era. It argues that Kyrgyzstan is challenged with oscillations between the old and the new on the one hand, and domestic and international on the other. The book analyses the process of post-Soviet transition in today’s Kyrgyzstan by focusing on the political elites, some of the major identity problems and educational issues. It discusses how Kyrgyzstan’s first president in the post-Soviet era had already been an exceptional leader even prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union in terms of his democratic and liberal tendencies. The book goes on to look at how identity is a major factor in the country, shaped to a large extent by genealogical factors and patron-client mechanisms on the one hand, and religious considerations on the other. Finally, it highlights how education has been perceived as a very influential agent of socialization that develops not only literacy and other skills, but also common attitudes and values that are considered essential to any society. By evaluating these three areas, the book argues that Kyrgyzstan cannot isolate itself from the demands, priorities and pressures of international actors, which sometimes are in conflict with the country’s domestic conditions. It is of interest to students and scholars of Asian Studies, Politics and International Relations.
