Abstract

Abstract: Migration, in a simple definition, is the movement of people from one country to another. One of the major problems in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is youth migration. Young people from BiH mostly migrate to European countries. Factors which have an influence on the youth migration and relationship between demographic differences, as well as the tendency of the youth to emigrate have attracted a great curiosity. The purpose of this study is to examine the perceptions of the youth about determinants of migration as well as the relationship between demographic variables and immigration tendency. Using the survey method, 207 responses were collected from the youth in BiH. Descriptive analysis, one-sample, and independent sample t-test were constructed to analyze data. The results have showed that the perceptions of the youth about job opportunities in BiH and approach of officials towards young people are negative. However, study results show that younger group of young people with less education have a greater tendency to emigrate. Keywords: migration, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the youth
