Migration and Displacement: Socio-ecological Intricacies and Benefits

Migration and displacement have increased in diverse localities triggered by a range of factors, including conflict, disasters, climate change, economic opportunities, environment, urbanization, among others.  The common narrative around migration and displacement is that they are strongly associated with negative social, economic, cultural and ecological consequences. What are the contexts and dimensions of migration in the source and destination areas? What are the benefits and costs of migration and displacement? What are the trade-offs in migration and displacement? How do environmental and climate induced migration compare with other triggers? What influences the positive or negative consequences of migration and displacement in diverse regions? Under this theme, we will accept abstracts that address the above, as well as other pressing issues surrounding migration and displacement.
