How will climate change reshape migration? And what are governments planning to do about it? This online course, run by Alex Randall, our Climate and Migration Coalition manager, examines these questions in depth. Over the space of 10 months, this course examines the major issues around climate-linked migration and displacement.
This is a free course and you do not need any previous knowledge to participate. Missed a webinar? No worries - you can watch the recording online, at your own pace. Each session also comes with a collection of recommended reading and watching, so you can investigate the themes and ideas further if you wish.
Webinars 1 to 3 will focus on Getting Started, Webinars 4 to 6 will explore Politics, Webinars 7 and 8 will focus on Policy, and Webinars 9 and 10 will explore Complex Crises.

This lecture provided grounding in both climate change and migration. We explored the history of climate change and engaged with some key episodes of human migration in history.
Webinar 3: What do we know? And what does the future hold? - 18 April 2019
This seminar explored what research evidence tells us about current migration linked to climate change, and how we can attempt predictions about the future.
Politics 1: Neoliberliasm - 16 May 2019
Can we use the labour market to address climate-linked migration? Should we look into the insurance industry to protect people from climate displacement? This session looks at how neoliberal thinking emerged, and what its application to climate-linked migration might mean.
