“Brain drain” phenomenon- In the ’90s 40% of teachers and researchers left. In the 2000s, 60% of the educated individuals went abroad
The phenomenon of brain drain has turned over the years into a real scourge for our society and economy, while it has happened only in the case of Albania and not in Kosovo, Macedonia, or Serbia. The National Diaspora Strategy analyzes disturbing data on the number of educated Albanians who have left over the years, while the phenomenon still continues. In 1990, 40% of teachers and researchers left Albania, according to the analysis of the Ministry of Diaspora, while another worrying figure relates to the number of Albanians educated abroad but who have decided not to return home. “In the early 2000s, about 60% of graduates in Western countries either left the country or did not return after graduation,” says a document from the Ministry of Diaspora.
Of concern is the fact that these intellectuals have decided to leave their country even though where they live they are not offered employment at the level or profile of their education.
The phenomenon of “brain drain” includes academics, qualified persons in various fields, as well as a significant number of Albanian students studying at foreign universities. From Italy and Greece, the Albanian “brain” of migration moves towards Canada, the USA, Germany, Great Britain and other EU countries.
