This paper is basedon the idea that the migration choices of the highly skilled are driven by the search for favourable socio-economic contexts able toensure higher income, better employment opportunities but also better institutions. By using data on a sample of 47 300 Italiangraduates, the impact of provincial institution quality on the probability of resident graduates migrating is studied. A Heckmanprobit estimation indicates that institutions do matter for migration decisions and their importance is comparable with that of per capita income provincial differences.
