The phenomenon of migration is a multifaceted and intricate process that carries considerable implications for both security threats and human rights within the current global landscape. As the quantity of global migrants attains unprecedented heights, decision-makers and professionals are confronted with the task of reconciling security apprehensions with the safeguarding of fundamental human rights. The objective of this scholarly article is to conduct a thorough examination of the correlation between migration, security risks, and human rights, with a particular emphasis on the consequences of policy measures. Utilizing a comprehensive analysis of extant scholarly literature and employing a qualitative research approach, this manuscript investigates the phenomenon of migration patterns and their potential implications for security threats. Additionally, this study evaluates the efficacy of policy measures implemented by both governmental and international organizations. It assesses their impact on the fundamental rights and overall well-being of migrant populations. This study emphasizes the necessity of comprehending the intricate interplay of factors involved, providing valuable perspectives and suggestions to guide policymaking and implementation in tackling the difficulties presented by migration, security risks, and human rights. This research paper aims to contribute to a wider comprehension of the correlation between migration, security, and human rights by addressing significant research questions and objectives. The ultimate goal is to improve the safeguarding of human rights in the face of security challenges related to migration.
