Migratory Flows and Self-Governing Rights: A New Paradigm for the Post-Communist Eastern Europe

  • Abstract:

    Migratory phenomena are currently challenging the sphere of human security and democracy in the post-Communist Eastern Europe, in turn affected since the collapse of Soviet Union and Yugoslavian regimes by the fear of proliferation of ethnic and religious violence and instability promoted by national minorities. Since the spring 2015, the wider areas constantly deal with the humanitarian migrants’ crisis through their geographical corridors, exacerbating the public realm among locals and newcomers. Meanwhile, human rights abuses, political implications for EU candidate states, as well as selfish boundary policies and stubborn nationalisms, take already more and more place. Hence, what kind of scenario in terms of contribution to general securization of interstate-minority relations the migration will shaped? Migratory flows seem to be the new challenge for the region. Therefore, could such phenomenon negatively discourage the idea of self-governing rights and territorial autonomy to national minorities into the region?
