"Brain gain vs. brain drain. The countries in green have brain gain (more researchers come in than leave), and those in red have brain drain (more researchers leave than come in). This map shows data for countries with more than 170 sedentary researchers. (Source: World of Research 2015)"

I suspect Eivind is right. The darker countries all have lower tuition and better international student funding. Depending on how they were calculating who qualifies as a "researcher" and particularly if they used either PhD obtainment or on-faculty status, they would have included significant populations of people who were in the country with the express purpose of leaving within 3-6 years (after completing a degree).

@silpol: My hypothesis was not intended for all the brain-drained countries :)
