About the Book
As migration becomes an increasingly salient concern of global politics, so do the interactions
between migration and other global phenomena, particularly those that are predicted to contribute
to an upward trajectory in numbers of people on the move.
Assessing migration in the context of climate change, Nash draws on empirical research to offer a
unique analysis of policy-making in the field. This detailed account is a vital step in understanding the
links between global discourses on human mobilities, climate change and specific policy responses.
An important contribution to several ongoing debates in academia and beyond.
