Environmental Conflicts, Migration and Governance

The globalized era is characterized by a high degree of interconnectedness across borders and continents and this includes human migration. Migration flows have led to new governance challenges and, at times, populist political backlashes. A key driver of migration is environmental conflict and this is only likely to increase with the effects of climate change.

Bringing together world-leading researchers from across political science, environmental studies, economics and sociology, this urgent book uses a multifaceted theoretical and methodological approach to delve into core questions and concerns surrounding migration, climate change and conflict, providing invaluable insights into one of the most pressing global issues of our time.

“A timely investigation…at a moment when such debates as the classification of climate refugees or effective, rights‐based governance in a changing global environment are centerstage.” World Medical and Health Policy

"A major contribution to debates on climate change, resources, conflicts and migrations, putting governance failure rather than environmental determinism at the heart of contemporary concerns over mass migration." Philippe Le Billon, University of British Columbia
