Description

Climate change disproportionately impacts vulnerable communities. For some of the most vulnerable, these impacts have and will continue to force them to move within and across borders, challenging international law to provide a coordinated and just means for migration. This chapter explores the phenomenon of ‘climate-induced migration,’ identifies the sociological and legal uncertainties that surround it, and suggests areas of further research to respond appropriately to the emerging crisis.
