Bosnia and Herzegovina is rapidly losing population

More than 600,000 citizens have left Bosnia and Herzegovina in the past 10 years, and the number of people who have left this country is growing year by year. This is evidenced by the data of a study conducted within the framework of the UZOPI project (Unija za održivi povratak i integracije u Bosni i Hercegovini, Union for Sustainable Return and Integration in Bosnia and Herzegovina). The most massive outflow of the population is observed in the northern and western regions of the country. Mostly young people are leaving. Young people are leaving both the Republika Srpska and the Federation of BiH. In the Serbian regions of the BiH Federation, entire cities are emptying. “Grahovo is a ghost town. In Drvar, schools are emptying and serve only as polling stations in elections,” the UZOPI report notes.
