Climate Change and Displacement

Multidisciplinary Perspectives

Edited by: Jane McAdam

This book - now available in paperback - brings together a variety of disciplinary perspectives on the phenomenon of climate-induced displacement. It offers a rigorous holistic analysis of the phenomenon, which will better inform academic understanding and policy development alike. Each chapter identifies key issues that need to be considered in shaping domestic, regional, and international responses, including the complex causes of movement, the conceptualization of migration responses to climate change, the terminology that should be used to describe those who move, and attitudes to migration that may affect decisions to stay or leave.
