SEM2020

Edited by The Hugo Observatory of the University of Liège, this volume is the tenth in the annual series and the fifth of its kind published with the Presses Universitaires de Liège. The State of Environmental Migration aims to provide its readership with the most updated assessments on recent events and evolving dynamics of environmental migration throughout the world. Each year, the editors select the best graduate student work from the course “Environment and Migration” taught by Caroline Zickgraf at the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) of Sciences Po. This year’s authors focus primarily on sudden-onset displacement events, including the Australian megafires, the dam failure in Brumadinho (Brazil), the floods in Budrio (Italy), the Kerala floods (India), and cyclones Idai and Fani in Mozambique and India. The relationship between drought and conflict-related internal displacement in Somalia’s Bay Region, as well as the importance of populations’ perceptions of environmental risk on (im)mobility outcomes during acqua alta in Venice are analysed and discussed.

This volume is the eight in the annual series and the third of its kind published with the Presses Universitaires de Liège. The State of Environmental Migration aims to provide its readership with the most updated assessments on recent events and evolving dynamics of environmental migration throughout the world. Each year, the editors select the best graduate student work from the course “Environment and Migration”, taught by François Gemenne and Caroline Zickgraf at the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) of Sciences Po. Presented in this edition are displacements induced by some of the most dramatic disaster events of 2017, including Hurricane Irma and Cyclone Enawo, as well as analyses of migration flows related to a variety of environmental occurrences throughout the year spanning the globe.
