In this paper, the author analyses geopolitical aspects of the migration crisis by monitoring the state from the year of 2015 to 2020, with a special emphasis on the period during the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to mass migration, the transit countries are facing numerous security, economic, social and geopolitical challenges which have intensified since 2015 and have not abated during the Covid-19 pandemic. In the introduction, the author creates the geopolitical context within which the research problem will be analyzed. Based on this, it is possible to understand the significance of the Eurasian coastal zone marked as Rimland, as well as to locate and unmask the reasons for generating wars, poverty, social and other instabilities within this zone, especially in the Middle East and North Africa. In the second part, the author analyses demographic and geopolitical aspects of the migration crisis. The goal is to find the cause of the migration crisis, potential drivers and their intentions. Finally, the overall analysis is directed towards the state, risks and consequences in the Balkans and in Europe. The Balkan migration route, as one of the most significant transit roads, impacted the geopolitical state in the region. The author believes that the problems and potential risks of the migration crisis have been put aside during 2020, which might cause a domino effect of destabilization in the Balkans and in Europe in the future. Therefore, the main goal of this paper is to unmask the risks and threats caused by the migration crisis, which have been put aside and hidden in the shadows of the Covid-19 pandemic.
