Migration, Development and Environment

image of Migration, Development and Environment

This book explores the conceptual framework of the interrelationships between migration, environment and development, which are among the most pressing issues on the contemporary global agenda. After a conceptualization of this relationship, the paper treats, in a depth analysis with tables and figures, main issues such as: environment as cause of migration in case of environmental disasters and environmental degradation; climate change and migration; displacement by large projects and impacts of migration on destination environments. The implications these have for policy are also considered.

Environment as cause of migration

In the literature on migration and environment the focus of research has clearly been an environmental change as a cause of migration rather than a consequence. Yet the concept of environmental induced migration remains a contested one (Black 2001; Castles 2002).
