Brain Drain from the End of the 1950s to the Beginning of the 1990s with an Emphasis on Slovenia

This article refreshes our memory about the time of the intensive (global) brain drain, looking at the way it is dealt with in selected studies as well as the position of Slovenia from the end of the 1950s to the beginning of the 1990s, that is, when Slovenia became independent. In the first part, the author considers the various theoretical concepts and their definitions. Then, in the second part, she illuminates the phenomenon using clear data to reveal Slovenia’s integral role in the broader world currents of that time. She asserts that understanding the wider context is the kay to understanding the phenomenon in all its dimensions.
