Call for Abstracts: Climate Change Related Mobility in the Nordic Region

Internal and International Dimensions

The interdisciplinary Nordic Network on Climate Displacement and Mobility welcomes abstracts for its second workshop “Climate Related Mobility in the Nordic Region: Internal and International Dimensions”. The workshop is to be held 8-9 December 2022 at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law in Lund, Sweden.

Climate-related mobility into and within the Nordic region encompasses a broad range of phenomena from the experience of indigenous peoples moving in response to changing grasing conditions to claims for international protection by people unable to return home in the context of drought or flooding.

Academic and policy responses within the region have so far been limited, whilst Nordic engagement with the issue at the international level has been somewhat more pronounced.

This workshop will continue and broaden discussions initiated in the first workshop in 202. It aims to bring together a select group of scholars interested in contributing to an edited volume that will articulate an interdisciplinary empirical and theoretical research agenda. Routledge has confirmed their interest in publishing such a volume.

Early-career scholars are particularly encouraged to make submissions.
