This paper is the product of IISA research and HOLDS Foundation fieldwork in refugee camps/sites.

By exploring both the causes of the refugee crisis — particularly post-Communist history of the Balkans and Southern Caucasus regions — and effects the crisis has had on host countries, the paper displays examples of how short-term migration policy with little long-term consideration can cause serious domestic and international destablization.
