2021/10 – Graduate Institute (IHEID); Global Challenges special issue; Author(s): Graduate Institute

"In the context of a lingering Eurocentrism, not least within academia, scholars and development professionals are increasingly calling for the decolonisation of their respective fields. However, as nationalist ideologues from Europe to Asia have shown, the challenges to effective decolonial action go well beyond intellectual intransigence: the prospects for a neo-imperialist subversion of the decolonial discourse itself remain alarmingly real", write Grégoire Mallard, Dominic Eggel, and Marc Galvin in the introduction to the special issue of the Graduate Institute's Global Challenges series.

Connecting the Dots: Climate Change, Migration and Social Protection

28 Oct 2021

2021/10 – International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED); research paper; Author(s): Ritu Bharadwaj et al.

There are several aspects of climate-induced short-term or circular migration, especially in combination with other socio-economic factors, that are not fully understood. Without reliable data on the pattern of circular migration, policymakers can not recognise or address migrants’ needs, issues and vulnerabilities. This paper provides an understanding of what drives migration, the patterns associated with it, its issues and consequences, and provide broader policy recommendations.
