    Assessing migration in the context of climate change, Nash draws on empirical research to offer a unique analysis of policymaking in the field. This detailed account is a vital step in understanding the links between global discourses on human mobilities, climate change and specific policy responses. An important contribution to several ongoing debates in academia and beyond.

    ''An engaging, empirically rich and theoretically informed exploration of how a new international policy field linking climate change and human migration has emerged. Detailed, acute, insightful.'' Giovanni Bettini, Lancaster University

    Sarah Louise Nash is a postdoctoral researcher in political science in the Institute of Forest, Environmental and Natural Resource Policy at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna.
