Abstract

This volume is the first of an annual series, which will aim to provide the reader with regularly updated qualitative assessments on the changing nature and dynamics of environmental migration throughout the world. The idea for it stemmed from the course «Environment and Migration», taught at the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) of Sciences Po, that examines the complex relationship between environmental change and migration flows. For their final assignment, students were asked to select and analyse a 2010 specific case of environmental migration, be it a sudden and violent natural disaster or a slow‐onset environmental degradation. The best of these papers have been selected and edited, and are presented in this volume. The 2012 Edition is in preparation and will feature case studies from the year 2011.
