Conference on Climate Change and Migration

FYI. Note: even if you can’t attend, a podcast will be available for this conference. The conference’s organizer, Jane McAdam, has done some very interesting work on the legal implications of actors being rendered stateless by climate change.

  •  Adaptation and ‘migration with dignity’
  •  Relocation and land tenure
  •  Climate change migration and (human) security
  •  Institutional responses: where to from here?
