"Beyond Climate Migration" International workshop. April 20-21

"Beyond Climate Migration" International workshop organised by Christiane Fröhlich, Sarah Nash and Ethemcan Turhan, April 20-21.

The workshop ‘Beyond Climate Migration’ moved beyond ‘climate migration’ to critically engage with migration in a world increasingly more complex with multiple geopolitical and environmental challenges. The main goal of the workshop was to critically evaluate and engage with current practices in the field of ‘climate migration’ and with different constructions of space, as well as to develop a better understanding of intersectional differences and the social regulation of borders for people on the move. We also provided an interdisciplinary platform in which researchers and migration/development practitioners could exchange ideas not solely focusing on climate change-migration relations but on the broader phenomena of human mobility under major environmental and geopolitical transformations.
