Kosovans leaving their homeland
Kosovans leaving their homeland

Up to date, UNDP Kosovo has published eight national Human Development Reports.The eighth KHDR discusses mobility and Kosovo Diaspora and how they influence Kosovo’s long-term development. From the human development point of view, voluntary migration flows are on one hand  indicators of the degree of freedom people enjoy and on the other hand indicators of their unhappiness living in their origin country. Kosovo has experienced migration throughout history. At present, it is estimated that more than 30% of people born in Kosovo reside outside its territory.  However, apart from several studies on the impact of migration through remittances on Kosovo’s economy, its impact on social development, education, position of women in society, health and education, and other aspects of human development have not been studied thoroughly. The HDR of 2014 concentrates on these issues and analyses the impact of mobility/migration on human development in Kosovo.
