Internal brain drain and its impact on higher education institutions' capacity building and human resource development in Sub-Saharan Africa: the case of Tanzania

Ishengoma, Johnson M.

Abstract:
In this paper, the author attempts to emphasise the internal brain drain problem using documetary and anecdotal evidence from the University of Dar es Salaam.  The paper attempts to answer the question: " What has been the impact of and the extent or magnitude of internal brain drain on Tanzania's public institutional capacity building and human resource development...?   The paper is dvided into five sections: Section 1 introduces the concepts of internal brain drain and brain drain in general; section 2 briefly reviews literature on the causes of brain drain in general and internal brain in particular; section 3 presents some available documentary and anecdotal evidence of internal brain in a broader national context and section 4 presents some evidence of internal brain drain at the University of Dar es Salaam and implications for the institution’s capacity building and human resource development; while the last section summarizes the paper and makes some tentative  conclusions.  The data shows that internal brain drain adversely affects human resources development as well as capacity building at this institution and at other public universities.
