Thekli Anastasiou, Doctoral Researcher in the School of Law and member of the MRG Group has recently contributed a chapter titled ‘Public International Law’s Applicability to Migration as Adaptation: Fit for Purpose?’ in the book ‘Climate Refugees: Overcoming the Legal Impasse? (Routledge, 2018)’ edited by Avidan Kent and Simon Behrman, which has now been published.
The chapter examines current developments in public international law with regards to migration and displacement in the context of environmental factors, and proposes an approach that facilitates migration as adaptation and champions human dignity as a principle in public international law. The book brings together several approaches to migration and displacement in the context of environmental factors.
