Session on forced migrations organised by the IGU Population Geography Commission
Migration and Climate Change (convenor Prof. Etienne Piguet)
The amount of empirical research focusing on the link between environmental degradation and forced migration in order to forecast the migratory consequences of global warming has risen significantly in recent years. The variety of empirical methods used by researchers is impressive, ranging from qualitative interviews and historical analogies to questionnaire surveys and highly sophisticated statistical methods. This session will attempt at an overview of recent empirical results with a specific focus on China and Asia.
Deadline for abstracts : Monday, 15 February 2016.
