About the Authors
  • The last few years have witnessed a flurry of activity in global governance and international lawseeking to address the protection gaps for people fleeing the effects of climate change. This book discusses cutting-edge developments in law and policy on climate change and forced displacement, including theories and potential solutions, issues of governance, local and regional concerns, and future challenges. Chapters are written by a range of authors from academics to key figures in intergovernmental organisations, and offer detailed case studies of policy developments in the Americas, Europe, South-East Asia, and the Pacific. This is an ideal resource for graduate students and researchers from a range of disciplines, as well as policymakers working in environmental law, environmental governance, and refugee and migration law. This is one of a series of publications associated with the Earth System Governance Project. For more publications, see www.cambridge.org/earth-system-governance.

    • Presents cutting-edge analysis of developments in law, policy, and institutional processes at national, regional, and global levels
    • Includes chapters from leading academics, plus key players in intergovernmental organisations that are at the forefront of developing policy on climate change
    • Offers critical analysis of key players and strategies at the forefront of policy development on climate change and forced migration
