Migration does not affect all Eastern European countries in the same way. Due to topological factors, some countries, such as Romania and Poland, have acted as transit countries. Others, such as Hungary, can be considered as recipient countries. In the context of Central and Eastern European migration, a distinction also needs to be made between safe (Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland) and unsafe (the former Soviet Union, Romania, Albania, Serbia) migratory fronts. The levels of migration can be attributed to a combination of ethnic and economic push effects.
