Summary/Abstract: The author of this paper deals with economic sustainable return that is in function of regeneration of multiethnic population structure on the whole area of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Analysing demographic and ethnical structure of Bosnia and Herzegovina – paying attention to results of census from 1991 on one side, and to various reports about numerosity of population and their ethnic structure in post-Dayton Bosnia and Herzegovina on the other side – the author concludes that it is considerably changed. For the purpose of rehabilitation of ethnical structure of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ibrahimagić presents public plea for economic sustainable return as rational solution of this question. The return means preserving landed property, because, according to the author, who owns landed property, that has the state. Without landed property and birth-rate, people will disappear by natural way. Because of that, question of economic sustainable return has to be the first class political question of all citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina, not only those in B&H, but those in Diaspora. Ibrahimagić criticizes Bosnian and Herzegovinian Diaspora for their passive and indolently relations to this question. He believes that our Diaspora, apparently unaware of the personal responsibility for the fate of our people, as well as for the fate of Bosnia and Herzegovina as their national state.
