Summary/Abstract: The complexity and globalisation of migration are normal processes of functioning and evolution of contemporary European society, currently facing the COVID-19 pandemic that will exacerbate existing security risks by imposing on member states and the North Atlantic Alliance important integral decisions related to both the humanitarian crisis of refugees correlated with the provision of public health measures and their economic and social impact on social security. There is a constant evolution of the issue of international migration within the EU, but also a concern for permanent improvement of its legal framework, migration bringing both benefits and costs for the area of freedom, security and justice of the EU. In fact, migration is a fundamental threat to the cohesion and identity of society, the fundamental components of societal security. A concept developed by the “Copenhagen School”, migration can be considered the main source of societal insecurity as it can threaten society’s identity and change its composition.
