MIGRATION AND TERRORISM: DYNAMIC INTERACTION

Novikova O.

Abstract

The paper addresses the issue of the migrationterrorism intersection. Research indicates that immigration does not unconditionally promote terrorism in European countries but the article also draws our attention to the problem of radicalisation of immigrants in receiving countries. At the same time, it is reported that the fear over immigrants made them targets of terrorist attacks by farright natives. It is specially noted that the ‘securitization’ of migration is potentially counterproductive. It is stressed that a balanced approach to migration and counterterrorism migration policies is needed.
