After the migration crisis in 2015, EU countries such as Hungary and Bulgaria reinforced their immigration policy at the borders, which is why, since then, more and more migrants have tried to enter the EU through Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Usually, these migrants arrive from Greece, via Turkey and then continue their journey through the Balkans to Bosnia-Herzegovina, in the region of Bihac which is only a few kilometers away from the Croatian border and therefore from the European Union.

While the Bosnian authorities plead for the EU to help and to open the borders, the EU wants Bosnia and Herzegovina to regulate its migration policy.

A powerful standoff leaving tens of thousands of people stuck in an in-between where no one wants them.
