Migration and Human Rights in the Wake of Climate Change
2016 AXA Pop Day | Cosmin Corendea | Migration and Human Rights in the Wake of Climate Change
Human rights violations can follow extreme climate events, disrupting access to clean water, housing or other basic rights. Dr. Cosmin Corendea examines this relationship and its connection to migration decisions. To develop legal approaches focused on the vulnerable people affected by climate change, his field research in the Pacific Islands will elicit recommendations from within the society. He aims to make the resulting migration solutions sustainable by creating the legal framework to support them.
