Migration Matters (2020)

Dr. François Gemenne, Dr. Caroline Zickgraf, Dr. Yvonne Su

What would you do if your home got flooded?

If your house were destroyed in a flood, you’d move to a new place – right? “Mobility” is a useful umbrella term that encapsulates forced displacement and voluntary migration. Dr. Caroline Zickgraf and Dr. François Gemenne also emphasize the need to understand why people do not (or cannot) move, even after an environmental disaster. 

Look out for...

  • Mobility and resources
  • Mobility and gender
  • The right to stay
  • Trapped populations
