'The breadth and depth this book brings to the legal issues surrounding climate-related displacement and migration are simply unmatched. The contributors explain the conceptual difficulties in identifying ''climate migrants,'' analyze the weaknesses in the current legal and institutional framework, identify gaps, and propose innovative solutions. The volume should be read by everyone interested in the topic, from those learning about it for the first time to policymakers trying to address one of the most difficult challenges climate change poses.'
--John H. Knox, UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and the Environment and Wake Forest University, School of Law, US
'While many publications on the climate change-migration nexus present a specific and oftentimes narrow approach to this topic, Mayer and Crépeau succeed in bringing together a wealth of different and sometimes contradicting perspectives. The Research Handbook is a comprehensive and thought-provoking collection of high-quality contributions and thus essential reading for everyone interested in the current state of art in a field that addresses one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century.'
--Walter Kälin, University of Bern, Germany
