Belgrade, 12/22/2022– Asylum Protection Center was a guest on the RTS show “Thursday at 9” together with representatives of the police and the academy, in an attempt to shed light on the complex nature of migrations, current events and trends, position and the needs of refugees, the problems Serbian society and the system are facing with, as well as to offer possible solutions both in the short and long term.

The show also discussed whether 2015, the year of the great migration crisis, could be repeated, when more than a million people passed through Serbia; as well as what the arrival and staying of migrants means for Serbia and the labor and real estate market.
What is the situation in Horgoš after the conflict between the two groups of migrants when weapons were also found, and what is the situation like at the borders with North Macedonia and Bulgaria, which are crossed by up to 4 times more migrants than before?
Can 2015, the year of the great migrant crisis, be repeated, when more than a million people passed through Serbia? What does the arrival and staying of migrants, above all the large number of Russians, mean for Serbia and the labor and real estate market?
