Focus on Climate Displacement


The Climate Change and Displacement Reader by Scott Leckie, Ezekiel Simperingham & Jordan Bakker is newly available from Routledge. Here is the blurb:

This compilation brings together fifty-one of the leading texts on climate change and displacement. It provides a consolidated source and substantive overview of the key issues relating to climate change and displacement, including: the reality of climate displacement; the shape of current and proposed international law on this matter; the institutional and governance framework that will address and respond to this crisis; and an analysis of what a cross-section of governments and civil society organizations are already doing to prepare for and act against climate displacement.
