CALL FOR PAPERS: Workshop on Environmental Change and Migration
The Refugee Studies Centre and the International Migration Institute are organising the 'Environmental Change and Migration' workshop, which will take place on 8 - 9th January 2009 in Oxford.
The workshop will take place over two days. The first will concentrate on questions of evidence and conceptualisation and will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their findings from the field. The second will concentrate upon questions of protection and response, and provides a forum for researchers, activists and policy makers to consider the efficacy of the frameworks currently in place for protecting and aiding those displaced by environmental transformation, and to debate how more effective mechanisms might be developed, with a view to developing recommendations for action.
Deadline for abstracts is 31 October 2008. [more information]
