Human migration and the environment are two of the most pressing issues of our times. But what is stake when these two phenomena are articulated as a singular relation? By asking this and many other questions, this conference provides a multidisciplinary forum for scholars, policymakers, practitioners and artists to chart out the next generation of research on human migration and the environment. The aim of the conference is to expand the debate on human migration and the environment beyond its current configuration as a problem of causation, law and policy towards a more pluralist debate that acknowledges the multidimensional nature of environmental change and migration. The conference subthemes – ‘futures’, ‘politics’ and ‘invention’ – will consider issues of knowledge, power and innovation the context of human migration and environmental change. The conference should appeal to social scientists, humanities and legal scholars as well as to scientists committed to working with and within the social sciences, humanities and law.
The website at www.durhamconference.eu will keep you up to date with the latest news and developments for the conference as well as providing the details for registration.
This conference Climate Change and Migration is sponsored by COST Action IS1101 climate change and migration: knowledge, law and policy, and theory.
