Great Decisions - “Climate Migration"

February 15, 2023 - 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
The Dubois Center at UNC Charlotte Center City

Kristina Shull, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of History, UNC Charlotte

Despite widespread acknowledgement of the growing global connections between climate change and migration, there are currently no legal protections in international or US law for people displaced by climate change. Who might be considered climate refugees, and who is responsible for welcoming them? This presentation explores historical, political, and ethical issues surrounding climate migration by foregrounding the shared experiences--and knowledge--of people around the world who have been most impacted by a changed, and changing environment.
