Information

In contrast to the common alarmist scenarios of millions of refugees that could soon migrate to Europe, Benjamin Schraven gives an overview of recent research on the climate-migration nexus that emphasises the complexity of the interplay between  ecology and mobility. The conclusion drawn is that climate change is more likely to lead to more internal and intraregional migration and forced displacement in the Global South. Urban areas play an essential role in that regard, both as actors and as  hotspots of mobility and climate change.
