It also analyses the situation in Europe, especially the Balkans region, which has become a route used by migrants on their way to their fnal destinations. It is, therefore, a complex problem which still remains unsolved by the international community in general and by some European countries in particular. Tere are countries both in and outside of Europe which are directly or indirectly involved in the Middle East conficts, either through military operations or supporting regime forces. Te migrant crisis raises many concerns to be addressed, the most prominent being the issues related to the migrants themselves, as well as the problems faced by countries where they temporarily or permanently settle.
