The Reasons That Attract the Creative Class to Select a Place to Reside: Identifying the "Brain Drain" Situation of Greece and its Consequences

Anastasios Anastasopoulos

Student thesis: Master thesis


This thesis summarizes an effort to delve into the understanding of the contemporary issues that brain drain raises in Greece. As a starting point, we present the brain drain related literature as well as motivation theory and we use this framework to explain what drives people to leave their country. Later on, statistics, surveys, and articles will introduce the reader to the contemporary social condition of Greece. Using word processing software (NVivo), we code and analyze the primary data we gathered (interviews), as an effort to define the canvas of motives and address the most critical aspects of this reality. At last, we propose ways that this migration flow could be delimited.
