“Tsunami of migration” and “brain drain” in the religious dictatorship ruling Iran is one of the serious social crises and problems and the topic of many media’s daily discussions.
Aftab Yazd wrote on August 22: “A report published recently from the gathering of the top ranks of the entrance exam shows that these people have not yet entered the university, they are thinking of immigrating, and some of them have already chosen their destination country.” The Bahar News website wrote on August 1, 2023, referring to the reason for the increase in immigration statistics: “As long as the social atmosphere of a country poisoned, migration is a common and usual thing… A poisoned society is a space in which the social atmosphere not favorable; In other words, the field for freedom of speech and opinion is limited, there is no peace of mind, unemployment is high, incomes low, living conditions miserable and there are a thousand and one other problems.
Referring to the astonishing statistics of brain drain in Iran, the Ferraro website wrote: “80% of Iran’s top ranks in mathematics and physics have emigrated from the country in the years 2001 to 2016. Of this number, an average of 78% of the elites have not returned to the country… The data related to 2018 shows that among the top 10 ranks in 2001 in the field of mathematics and physics, only two of them have remained in Iran.
This media continues: “In Iran, not only policies adopted that make the elites run away, but there is also an indifferent view of the export of the elites from the country.”

Eatemad ol August 2023 newspaper wrote about this: “The strategy of purification, which formed before in the field of politics and administration of the country, opened its way to trade, civil and academic institutions and is taking victims. This type of behavior is the policy of removing the university from the field of national development.
The expansion and severity of the security atmosphere, high prices, unemployment, poverty and a thousand and one other problems in Iran, causes millions of Iranians to immigrate and go to countries with different culture, social relations and They are not even familiar with its language.
According to the specific design, the “cleansing” plan extended from the parliament to the society, university and professors and it went so far that along with the filing and dismissal of professors and students, a handful of elements related to the government quietly and secretly employed in the universities.

HamMihan newspaper on August 20, 2023 writes. “Now question is, who are going to replace in universities instead of these fired professors? In university groups, a document published that shows that the President’s government is secretly recruiting 15,000 Hamso faculty members on a quota basis. has started immediately and outside the existing scientific framework of universities”.
With a little reflection on the words “secret”, “aligned”, “immediate” and “outside the scientific framework of the universities”, we see that 15,000 forces affiliated with the government enter secretly and immediately to the professors and faculty members of the universities who agree with the system. And those who not “aligned” should removed and instead of them, 15,000 “aligned” Basijs enter universities. Now the question before everyone is, what is the goal they are pursuing with this work?
It is clear that the current professors, who subjected to purges and expulsions, were naturally not opponents of this government and entered the universities as professors after passing through the various filters of this system. But the current situation of Khamenei has become so weak that he can’t even bear to hear and accept the criticisms of the same “former insiders” and has started a second cultural coup in universities.
In this way, the ground for the migration of the country’s scientific funds and the removal of professors and elites is provided more and more.
The destructive effects of such actions in the whole country can be in practice after a few years. Of course, this action and the project of purifying the professors is not something that needs a long time to find out its results, and only one part of it is the migration of brains and human assets of the country.
