Is Finland losing out in the international competition for highly educated individuals? The results indicate that Finland suffers from brain-drain to some extent. The magnitude of the problem is not alarmingly large, and it has not become worse during the recent past. Although immigrants to Finland have substantially less education than the Finnish public at large, they are likely better educated than immigrants to Sweden or Denmark. Despite this the labour market performance of Finland's immigrant is roughly as bad as for immigrants in the rest of Wester Europe. This amounts to a failure of assimialtion policies.
