A snapshot of the symposium on migration, mobilities, and environmental change

While scientific public funding agencies, NGOs, policy makers, and think tanks claim that climate migration poses as a potential aggravator of security risk, many of these claims are unfounded. In order to shift from the climate migration security narrative to a more diverse, intersectional and mundane manner, ENP's Ingrid Boas together with more than 30 lead authors in the field have published a commentary with Nature Climate Change. This is an outcome of an ENP-hosted symposium, organized by Ingrid and Hanne Wiegel, gathering climate researchers from around the world, aiming to shift the debate from climate migration to climate mobilities.
