This paper presents some of the results of an exploratory research conducted on an appropriate sample of students from six countries in the region of Southeast Europe (N-973), among them 182 potentially gifted, ie with an average grade above 9.00, therefore with expressed academic performance. The intercultural sensitivity of the gifted students was examined in the context of the current migration processes in order to analyze their ability to accept pluralistic ideas and to reconsider the opposite argumentation, because the gifted have a greater tolerance to diversity and the like.

The differences in the intercultural sensitivity of the gifted students compared to other students, as well as the differences between students by gender, were recorded by applying the descriptive method and the scale of assessment as an instrument. The instrument was concerned with the question: what effects in the field of intercultural communication can cause current migration in Europe? Independent variables were gender and success in studies, and the dependent variable was level of intercultural sensitivity.

The main finding relates to the following: there are statistically significant differences (small or medium) in evaluating positive and negative intercultural effects in terms of sex and success in studies, and that the donation in immigration flows has more positive effects for the EU, and in the first place among these is the strengthening of multiculturalism in the EU.
