Securitizing 'climate refugees' : the futurology of climate-induced migration.

Baldwin, W.A. and Methmann, C. and Rothe, D. (2014) 'Securitizing 'climate refugees' : the futurology of climate-induced migration.', Critical studies on security., 2 (2). pp. 121-130.


This article serves as the introduction to this special issue in Critical Studies on Security. It begins with a brief overview of the academic debate and policy context concerning climate change and human migration. The principal claim is that critical evaluation of the security dimensions of climate change and migration must begin with the epistemological challenge that knowledge about climate change and human migration is speculative and future-conditional. This introductory piece then provides short synopses of each article included in the special issue.

Item Type:Article
Keywords:Climate change, Migration, Security, Future.
