International Conference Migration, Environment and Climate: What risk inequalities?

Conference date(s): 22 October 2018 - 23 October 2018

The Centre national d’études spatiales (CNES), with the support of the Agence française de développement (AFD), the French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED) and the French Museum of Natural History (MNHN), is organizing an international conference on the links between human mobility, climate and environmental changes. The aim is to capture the complexity and multiplicity of interactions between migration and environment as brought to light by recent or ongoing research, taking explicit account of inequalities in the populations under study. The approach aims to be broad-based, and proposals are welcome not only from the field of demography but also from related disciplines (geography, anthropology, sociology, economics, epidemiology and political science).

The three Forum held in the past nine years have achieved great success, making this series highly prestigious and influential.

The World Social Science Forum2018 is dedicated to security, currently one of the most pressing concerns of societies worldwide. Over the course of four days, the participants will look into various dimensions of security, interrogating how the demand for security relates to societies’ quest for equality and sustainability. Presenters will look into approaches, trends, and responses from different sectors. The WSS Forum2018 will allow identifying critical research priorities on security, as well as data and knowledge gaps, globally and in specific regions
