Details

The effects of the climate crisis will be most acutely felt by the poor and the disenfranchised. While everyone will be impacted to some extent by rising sea levels, a hotter climate, and extreme weather events, the structures that shape our lives -- be they economic, social, racial, and gendered -- will determine which communities are most devastated by and vulnerable to the climate crisis. The purpose of this workshop is to examine the impact of the climate crisis on migration. Some possible questions to engage with might include:

  • What are the gendered impacts of the climate crisis on migration?

  • How does the climate crisis challenge, reify, or complicate existing global inequalities?

  • What are our duties of justice toward people displaced by the climate crisis?
