Authors: Ilan Kelman; Robert Stojanov; Shabana Khan; Oscar Alvarez Gila; Barbora Duží; Dmytro Vikhrov
The contributors present empirical and theoretical insights on current debates on environmental change, adaptation and migration. While focusing on countries subject to environmental degradation, it calls for a regional perspective that recognises local actors and a systematic link between development studies and migration research.
The State of Environmental Migration series gathers the expertise of researchers, students and professionals to provide an annual assessment of the changing nature and dynamics of environment- and climate-related migration throughout the world.
