Description

From 2008–2014, an estimated 184.4 million people were displaced from their homes by environmental factors, and it is very likely that this number is set to rise with increasing climate change concerns. It was in the spirit of fostering research on this important topic that the workshop entitled ‘Environmental Displacement in 2017 – Current Displacement Challenges’ was held at the University of Sheffield in June 2017. The papers in this mini-volume centre around the theme of human movement in the context of environmental factors. Such movement can be either internal or cross-border, and occupies a continuum ranging from voluntary migration to displacement. This volume serves to shine a light on this issue and attempt to address it from a range of disciplinary backgrounds.
