Iran’s brain drain problem. Another shame for the Iranian regime.

Iran_s brain drain problem Why are Iranian students leaving the country

By Masoud Dalvand

Every year, thousands of Iranian university graduates leave their country to find job and life opportunities abroad. Meanwhile, the Iranian regime continues to give important jobs and government posts to people who are loyal to the ruling dictatorship rather than qualified for their jobs. Iran’s brain drain, which is becoming an escalating problem, is the direct result of the policies of the ruling regime.

Human rights violations and massive repression of youth, students, women, university professors, journalists and environmental activists, as well as severe living conditions under severe economic pressure and high educational costs in Iran under the Mullahs regime, for scientific elites, university students and university professors, and specialists It has not remain a different path, except for leaving Iran and migrating to advanced industrial countries in Europe, America, Australia and Canada. This problem has become so acute in Iran that Iran under the rule of the mullahs has ranked first in brain drain. When we look at the Iran’s brain drain, the measure of the catastrophe becomes clearer.

In the media of the Iranian regime

IRNA news agency: … We are unable to maintain our experts inside the country and are incapable of creating the conditions necessary for them to find safe and decent living conditions in Iran, like in the United States.

Fars News Agency affiliated to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps: More students and university professors who left Iran have caused irreparable damage to the country.

Official News agency of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Tasnim: The number of Iranian Iranian students applying for immigration to the United States has more than doubled.

Official reports in recent years have shown an increase of 220 percent in the number of Iranian immigrant students. This bracket has reached the point where around 150,000 people leave the country annually.

The damage caused by the brain drain problem for the country

It is estimated that the effects of the brain drain phenomenon are exerted economically on the country. For example, it is estimated that the damage caused by the brain drain and students from Iran to the United States is more than the frozen assets of Iran in the United States.

Another factor contributing to the increase in the number of university students and academics leaving Iran is the lack of appropriate educational conditions and low levels of universities and other educational facilities throughout the country.

As a result, more students are looking for better education and opportunities for scientific and research abroad. When their education ends, they are no longer willing to return to Iran, and this is a serious damage to Iran’s scientific fund.

Unemployment and the inability to attract graduates and specialists in Iran are another reason for people with a high degree of excellence who leave the country.

More than 50 percent of Iranian educated people are unemployed or forced to do things that have nothing to do with their specialty, even some university professionals and university graduates are forced to do construction work and clean up public places. Also, the conditions of the oppression and dictatorship of the mullahs in Iran make any expert and intellectual to leave the country and reach the place where freedom is.

It is a bitter fact that, as long as the religious dictatorship exists in Iran, the process of brain drain will continue to rise alongside other social and economic crisis of Iran, and only in conditions where freedom, democracy and respect for human rights rule in Iran The problem will be solved.
