Summary/Abstract: Securitization is a complex set of processes in which political and social relations are evaluated within the framework of security. In this context, the issue of migration has become one of the most important areas where securitization is applied today. By the end of the Cold War, migration and security phenomena has started to be associated with each other and has gained new dimensions in the meantime. In this process, many different concepts, including social security, internal security, and human security, are on the agenda. The issue of migration ranks high on the national and international agenda, which are within the scope of quite different views and goals. Therefore, at the intersection of policy objectives and public interests in two important areas, various consequences for states and individuals (immigrants and citizens) emerge.
