Balkan route: More evictions and violence in northern Serbia

The Balkan Route has been the most travelled route by people on the move into Western Europe since 2015. Located on the European Union’s external border, Serbia has consequently become one of the biggest transit countries for people on the move from Afghanistan, Syria, and many other countries. The Serbian-Hungarian border therefore hosts thousands of people on the move every week, with numbers decreasing in Winter and increasing in Summer.

Serbia’s accession into the political union is strategically used as an incentive to comply with the EU’s migration requests, as well as providing millions of Euros to support it in protecting the EU’s external borders.
