Population mobility across borders and boundaries is of major relevance for shaping and development of both the areas of origin and destination as well as social relations between them. Building on the literature on migration, this chapter highlights different types of spatial mobility of the population in Serbia, focusing on international migration, internal migration and commuting. Although they can have common determinants, and some of them can also have the same societal effects, those population movements are characterized by a distinct type of administrative crossing and duration of residence at the destination. In Serbia, the migration type is even more blurred due to the state changing boundaries dating from the breakup of Yugoslavia in 1991. The majority of the population covered by those population movements are individuals who are active in the workforce while gender dynamics of migration is becoming more noticeable.
