Climate Change and Migration in Euro-Med region: Socio-Economic Development and Intercultural Perspective
The project' aim is to research about climate crisis and forced migration towards the Southern Europe countries,
focusing on one of main goal from Global Compact for Migration (2018): " to create conducive conditions that
enable all migrants to enrich our societies through their human, economic and social capacities, and thus facilitate
their contributions to sustainable development at the local, national, regional and global levels".
The project inclides three aims: to provide a platform for sharing and learning on the climate change and migration nexus, from an intercultural South and North Med perspective; produce new knowledge in the field of climatic-environmental
migration; identifying actions based on case-studies. Research activities have a cross-cultural and multidisciplinary
approach: 1. a bibliometric analysis of the literature focusing on emblematic case-studies; 2. analysis of
international legislation on climate refugee status; 3. analysis of the migrants' perception about environmental
changes’ impact as migratory push factors.
