Since the beginning of the migrant crisis, Macedonia has been facing an unprecedented number of people that had entered Macedonian borders in order to reach the northern countries of the European Union. More precisely, even though Macedonia is not a frontline country to the Schengen zone, still its geographical position being the crossroad on the Balkan route, puts it in a very controversial position in this migration crisis context.
Having in mind this position as a frontline country to the borders of the Union and at the same time as a gate keeper of the Union’s borders, the issue that we are going to
investigate and evaluate in the paper is the role of FRONTEX in giving assistance to Macedonia’s border authorities for prevention of illegal migrants (since the Balkan route has officially been declared as closed by the EU), and furthermore we will examine the EEAS
Crisis Response System and the possibility to develop a common crisis management strategy within the EU defense framework.
