Migration is a global phenomenon that has received widespread attention in recent public discourses. While the topic is often presented in simplistic ways, it is characterized by high levels of complexity: a wide range of interlinked factors influence who migrates, under which conditions, when, and where to.
New emerging challenges, including the threats of climate change, geopolitical instability, and conflict, have major implications for human mobility in often unpredictable ways. To comprehensively understand migration and its multiple drivers in different contexts, rigorous evidence is needed.
This IIASA Voices webinar presents novel IIASA research using innovative data and analytical methods to decipher the interlinked drivers shaping migration processes worldwide. Raya Muttarak, Jesus Crespo Cuaresma, and Gregor Zens, with moderator Roman Hoffmann, will share their research and discuss policy strategies with a focus on the links between climate and migration, the role of local resource contexts in shaping migration patterns, and conflict driven displacement.
