Description: 

“Migration in Serbia: A Country Profile 2008” is part of a series of migration profiles produced by IOM Budapest within the “Black Sea Consultative Process on Migration Management” project, funded from IOM’s 1035 Facility. While inadequate statistical resources might hinder the analysis of the migration situation in Serbia, existing figures depict Serbia as a country of origin for migration. Estimates point to as many as four million people of Serb origin living today outside of Serbia, many of them young and educated. Balancing the negative impact of “brain drain” are the significant amounts of remittances received by the country, which have been its largest source of foreign currency inflows. Return migration is at low levels, while serious attention is still needed to the unresolved issue of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugees.
