The University of Nottingham Human Rights Law Centre and the Nottingham Trent University Climate Justice Hub, in collaboration with the ICON•S Interest Group on Climate Change and Migration and the ESIL Interest Group on Migration and Refugee Law, will be hosting a closed workshop addressing the pressing issue of climate-related human (im)mobility. 

Sponsored by the Socio-Legal Studies Association (SLSA), this workshop will bring together UK-based researchers, practitioners, and scholars from various disciplines. The workshop aims to foster collaborative research opportunities, re-humanise and re-historicise the impacts of climate change and forced mobilities, evaluate existing responses to climate-induced migration, and discuss improved future strategies. Participants will engage in small group workshops with short presentations and discussions on the following themes:

  • European Union, Law of the Sea and Legal Theory
  • Postcoloniality and the Global North-Global South Divide
  • Domestic and Regional Approaches 
  • Human Rights Issues in Climate-related Mobility
There will also be a dedicated session for engagement with civil society organisations working in this field. View the programme and the full list of papers
