This conference seeks to gather researchers from all disciplines, all continents and all career stages around topics pertaining to the interactions between environmental changes and migration. This conference aims to be the largest and most inclusive conference ever addressing this topic. It will also serve as a bridge with policy-makers and other research networks, so that the whole research and policy community on climate (im)mobilities is gathered at this event, which will also feature mentoring sessions and social networking activities. Twelve years after the publication of the Foresight Report, where do we stand as a research community? What have been the progress, the new avenues for research, and what are the remaining blind spots?

Call for Contributions:

The call for abstracts closed on 9 February 2024.
