About the Authors
  • Migration and Climate Change provides the first authoritative overview of the relationship between climate change and migration. It brings together both case studies and syntheses from different parts of the world and critically discusses empirical evidence, methodological challenges, conceptual gaps, policy responses, and normative issues.

    • Offers a balanced synthesis of scientific knowledge about one of the most discussed human consequences of climate change, appealing to those who want to go beyond headlines and sensational reports about the consequences of climate change
    • Leading experts from climatology, geography, economics, sociology, political science, anthropology and law provide authoritative synthesis of research and debates
