Call for Abstracts (Papers and Posters)
Abstract submission is closed.
We invite authors to submit abstracts of their work to the International Conference on Environment, Forced Migration and Social Vulnerability (EFMSV). Conference organisers are seeking papers and posters that will present new areas of research shedding light on the causes and consequences of human displacement, as well as its patterns and linkages with environment and social vulnerability. Abstracts should address one of the following topics:
- Environmental drivers of migration
- Geographical distribution and trends in environmental vulnerability and migration
- Assessment of migratory fluxes due to environmental drivers
- Migration as a coping strategy in the face of vulnerability to environmental change
- Temporary and permanent migration due to environmental drivers
- Recognition of and assistance to environmentally displaced persons
The abstracts with highest merit will be selected and authors invited to write full papers for presentation at the conference. The selected papers will be published in a pre-conference volume. Additionally, two post-conference publications are planned, in which a selection of the highest quality and revised papers may be printed: a jointly published book with the IOM, and a special journal edition of International Migration.
- The researchers of EACH-FOR are happy to present preliminary findings of 19 case studies. The case studies revealed linkages between environmental degradation and migration. All in all 22 case studies in nine regions have been conducted, where researchers assessed the causes of (forced) migration with a special focus on environmental degradation. This report can be considered a milestone of their work.Learn more about the findings by downloading the Preliminary Findings October
