Migration as a Threat to National Security


Background/Objective: The purpose of the study is to analyze the impact of illegal immigration on the national and regional labor markets as a national security indicator in the social and labor sphere. Methods: The economicmathematical and statistical methods were used to achieve the objectives of the study. The official statistical data in the field of labor and employment in the Russian Federation over the past five years served as empirical base of the research. With the help of statistical methods analytical indicators were designed, which allowed identifying the main trends in the labor market. Findings: Exogenous factors of national security become a priority in the economic aspect of Russia’s security, since it is the level of economic development of the country that largely determines the degree of its protection from external and internal threats. In this paper the author analyzes the factors affecting national security and focuses on illegal migration as a phenomenon actively involved in the social, economic and legal spheres. The impact of illegal migration on the national and regional labor markets viewed as an indicator of national security in the social and labor spheres has been studied. The use of outsourced manpower (studied in relation to its professional qualifications, distribution in Russia and industry labor markets) has been treated as a potential source of social and ethnic conflicts. Based on the empirical data the research provided quantitative and qualitative description of the real threats posed by illegal immigration, formed in the country in recent years, both in the economic and social sphere. Application/ Improvements: The interested executive bodies may use these results to develop management solutions aimed at more efficient management of migration processes and reduction of illegal immigrants, eliminating unnecessary administrative barriers for the mostly needed professionals.
