The subject of research in this doctoral dissertation is an overview of a complex interactive functioning system of society and economy in time and space, more precisely - the understanding of the effects of regional development policy on socio-economic developments in the Republic of Serbia. The wide range of inherited cultural and historical, demographic, economic, infrastructural, social and political parameters, considering natural and geostrategic position of certain areas, have a crucial impact to the unequal regional development of our country, which for decades was not regarded as an integral part of the overall socio-economic development, but it is analyzed as a separate and not particularly important aspect of the overall development. The most important aspect of this work is to highlight the need for formulating the appropriate strategic, dynamic and programmed approach to reduce regional imbalances in the Republic of Serbia, based on the analysis and considering ...all specificities and development needs of the region, as well as complex and living systems. Rational guided regional development policy today should be based on comparative advantages and valorization of unused or underused development opportunities and resources, where, in this study, we especially highlight the development potential of migration and diaspora as a resource for local and regional development. Achieving positive effects and mitigate the demographic disorders, as well as the correction of a lot of regional disparities requires time. Any delay of changes makes the situation even worse, and the demographic future of Serbia remains uncertain. In order to support the country to be effective, it is necessary to ensure its continuity and keep the intensity for a longer period, all this for the purpose of making balanced regional development, as well as long-term strategic orientation. In this sense, the main objective of this doctoral thesis is proposing such a regional development policy that would ensure a coordinated and integrated sectoral and territorial sustainable access to the socio-economic development of Republic of Serbia.
