Abstract
The study aims to explore the relationship between migration and the quality of education, considering the lowering quality of higher education in Georgia as one of the main ‘push-factors’. The research itself tries to identify the main motivations of why Georgian students migrate. Furthermore, the main gaps and disadvantages of the higher education system of Georgia are investigated. The findings are analyzed with the respect to the implications for country’s development processes, entailing that the lowering quality of higher education and active loss of human capital negatively affect ‘development’.
