Institute Clingendael has published a policy brief on Climate – Migration – Security; Making the Most of a Contested Relationship. The report discusses the relationship between climate change, migration and security, which is academically contested. Migration and Climate Change and Security issues are themselves relatively uncontested phenomena, but the causality between them is far from clear. But the subject of climate- and security-driven migration is too politically sensitive to wait for academic consensus, the authors argue.
The report offers a concise overview of the primary debates and is also valuable because of the literature to which it refers.
