The methodological principles of risks genicity of migration processes in the country, caused by factors of exogenous and endogenous actions (political, economic, social), on identification of new migration risks in the context of military threats are revealed. Classification features of risk typology, as well as factors of their formation and accumulation of deficits of basic social protection needs of the forced migrants are determined. It has been proved that creation of conditions of employment and other forms of realization of their potential by the introduction of monitoring of migration processes by socio-economic and demographic indicators plays the most important role in overcoming the main risk of livelihoods of forced migrants. At the same time, the establishment of effective social integration of migrants in the host region-society must minimize the manifestations of the risks of migrants’ integration: deviant, property, defensive, and socio-economic. It is substantiated that the state migration policy should work to prevent the manifestation of social risks (counteracting the massive outflow of the able-bodied population beyond Ukraine) by influencing relevant migration factors and improving the welfare of the population as a whole.
