Summary/Abstract: The article is addressing international migration and demographic transition in Bosnia and Herzegovina as processes instigated by socio-economic development. Taking into consideration available data related to population and migrations, the author is analysing consequences of migration movements on demographic transition and prospects of country's development. Migrations in Bosnia and Herzegovina have always had significant influence on socio-economic development and have affected population changes. However, the negative migration balance is currently additionally aggravating the trend of mature demographic transition and is accelerating the process of depopulation, which undermines the country's development prospects.
