The Hugo Conference: Environment, Migration, Politics

As the human dimensions of climate change are expected to be central dimensions of COP22, the conference will address the case of the increasingly numerous people displaced as a result of environmental disruptions, many of them related to climate change. For this, the conference will gather the research, policy and advocacy communities together one last time before COP22. The conference will also mark the launch of the Hugo Observatory, a new research united dedicated specifically to environmental migration, as well the creation of an international professional association of researchers working on these issues.
