Attend the ESF-ZIF-Bielefeld University Research Conference – Tracing Social Inequalities in Environmentally-Induced Migration from December 9th to 13th 2012, at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZIF), Bielefeld, Germany
The conference series on “Environmental Degradation, Conflict and Forced Migration” explores the causal relationship between environmental damage and forced migration as well as the correlation of both phenomena to conflicts and their repercussions. The series started in 2010 with three consecutive biennial conferences and is a partnership project of the European Science Foundation (ESF), the Bielefeld University and its Center for Interdisciplinary Research.
The conference 2012 is meant to shed light on the role of social inequalities in environmentally-induced migration and the mechanism of its reproduction. It is carried out in cooperation with the special research area of the Bielefeld University “From Heterogeneities to Inequalities” (CRC 882), the research project „Exils Climatiques: Gérer les déplacements des populations dues aux phénomènes climatiques extrêmes” (GICC-EXCLIM) and the COST Action IS1101 on Migration and Climate Change. The organizers of this year’s conference are J. Schade, T. Faist, C. Vlassopoulos, A. Baldwin. and F. Gemenne.
