Migration processes in the context of political collisions: Factors and social and economic consequences

Europe is undergoing the strongest migration crisis that in terms of its importance can be compared with the migration crisis caused by the Second World War. This article researches the coherence of “catastrophic” hypothesis related to the current migration crisis in Europe, and considers the risks and consequences of this crisis for the social and economic development of the European region. The materials stated in the article enable the authors to make the following conclusions: Migration as an objective phenomenon that comes with globalization phenomena will always maintain its historical focus from the lagging regions of the world in terms of economic and social development to more developed and democratically free regions, The current migration crisis in Europe has been caused by an abrupt increase in the migrants’ inflow to the region (2-5 times during 2015 as compared to 2014), as well as by the lack of coordination in the actions of representatives of the executive power of European countries, including the lack of distinct and efficient measures aiming at regulating the abruptly increased migration inflow, The “catastrophic” scenarios of the current migration crisis based on historical parallels (for example, the fall of the Western Roman Imperia and the Holy Roman Empire of the German nation) offered in some scientific and publicist articles have insufficiently objective grounds, Countries of Europe (and including the European Union) must take into account and forecast probable risks that will come with the current migration crisis (social and political instability that will cause destructive phenomena in economy), and The European region may extract potential profits from the migration crisis, successively pursuing the policy of securitization, integration and assimilation of migrants and herewith finding the balance between the efficient tolerance to newcomers and the required level of safety for the indigenous population. © 2017, ASERS Publishing House.
