Migration as a process of population movement, can be referred to as a constantly ongoing phenomenon, unconditioned by time, but it cannot be denied that periodically, due to specific circumstances, it’s intensity rapidly increases, creating a series of short-term and long-term consequences, and from time to time even determining the paths of history. Precisely such a significant migratory wave is unfolding before us today. In this paper, we mark the three most important consequences of the current phenomenon. The first is the security challenge, primarily in terms of terrorism, which one of the greatest threats of our time. The second refers to the process of etnification of politics, although this is not in the center of attention of academic and public debate, it can serve as a foundation of long-term changes in regional policy and relations between European states. At last, there is the challenge that is placed before the European Union’s institutions, bodies and procedures, but also before the very spirit of European solidarity on which all of them rest. Finally, we will consider the perspectives that are ahead of Serbia in these challenging times.
