Event and CFP on Climate Migration

A webinar featuring UCLA Law professor E. Tendayi Achiume and University of Hawaii (formerly University of Colorado) professor Maxine Burkett will be hosted by the Immigrant Justice and Climate Refugees Working Group at the Berkeley Center on Comparative Equality and Anti-Discrimination Law on October 27, 2020 at 10am PDT. 

The conversation will explore the relatoinship between climate change and the criminalization of migrants, identify releveant questions to deepen our understanding, and create a foundation for developing strategies to address interdisciplinary issues.



Also, Earth Refuge, the planet’s first legal think tank dedicated to climate migrants, is seeking papers, think pieces, and insights from legal analysts and practitioners knowledgeable about climate migration. 

The organizational mission for this newly-created group says, they seek to analyze the state of the law in the climate migration field, monitoring the operation of legislative, judicial and executive branches and commenting on draft legislation and strategic documents. They will also produce accessible legal toolkits and frameworks that do just that – frame the problem with a solution that works – and put them directly in the hands of people who need them.
