Climate Change has become a major concern for the international community. Among its manifold consequences, its impact on migration is increasingly attracting the attention of researchers, policy makers, and the wider public. Among others, environmental hazards and changes have been cited as key drivers of the recent migration movements from Central America to the United States in 2018 or the refugee movement to Europe in 2015. Although there is a consensus in the literature that environmental conditions are relevant for population mobility, empirical knowledge in the field remains varied, patchy and limited. The talk discusses the link between climate change and migration and explores some of the underlying mechanisms that moderate the relationship. A particular focus will be placed on the role of institutional, social, and economic conditions and how they influence the strength and direction of climate effects on migration in different contexts.

Der Vortrag wird von Roman Hoffmann auf Englisch gehalten.
