Persecution, chronic conflict and human rights violations in many countries have produced the highest numbers of displaced people in history. By the end of 2014, 59.5 million people worldwide had been forced from their homes. In 2014 alone 13.9 million became newly displaced—four times the number in 2010 (UNHCR pp. 2 - 3).The countries who ordinarily host these refugees are no longer able to cope. The vast majority of the world’s refugees are hosted by developing countries, mostly in the Middle East, Turkey and Pakistan. Turkey alone hosts 1.9 million refugees (UNHCR 2016), more than any other country in the world. With neighboring countries no longer able to provide basic services and opportunities, refugees are forced to seek refuge farther afield.What the media calls a “migrant crisis” in Europe is in fact a refugee crisis.The vast majority of people arriving by boat to Europe’s shores are fleeing from harm.Recognizing this as a refugee crisis is not just a matter of semantics: while states are legally obliged to respect and protect the rights of all human beings within their jurisdiction, they have particular legal obligations to refugees.The paper will focus on refugee crisis and will seek for some possible solutions. The agreement EU-Turkey is a good step forward, but it is not enough to manage the whole situation on appropriate way. It is very important to put more efforts in order to control the refugee flows and possible migrant’s route. Republic of Macedonia is sharing the very same challenges with other Balkans and EU countries, both economic and crime perspective of migrant crisis.
