Preventing graduates from leaving the state or enticing them back again is tricky. Clearly force is not the answer as you can't force people to stay put (at least not in the West).

In my opinion, the only viable solution is to, therefore, encourage people to stay by offering them a high standard of living and low crime rates. To a certain extent we are all responsible for ensuring that our countries are free of crime and are prosperous, but ultimately it is upto the local/national government to entice people to stay/come back. If I am not happy with the town/country in which I live I WILL move elsewhere.
