Environmental Justice Series: Climate Migration

March 30, 2022 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3043

The Environmental Law Society and the Duke Immigration and Refugee Project will be co-hosting a Climate Migration panel, the second event in the Environmental Justice Speaker Series. Climate migration examines the impact of climate change on human migration around the world. While rising sea levels, food scarcity, and unpredictable natural disasters have displaced, and continue to displace, millions of people around the world, the legal frameworks to address this urgent issue are relatively underdeveloped in the international community.
Professor Sarah Bermeo (Sanford School of Public Policy), Professor Elizabeth Keyes (University of Baltimore School of Law), and Roxana Bendezú (Migrants Roots Media) will speak about their research on climate migration, examine the link between climate change and migration, and share ideas on how to address this problem.This event is open to all members of the Duke community. Sponsored by ELS and DIRP. For any questions, please contact Jerry Zhu at jerry.zhu@duke.edu. RSVP here: https://bit.ly/3MLL853
