Mapping ecological conflicts and spaces of resistance
One of the core themes of climate justice is that of the forced migration of “internally displaced populations” and the international migration of climate refugees. Populations that have done the least to create the global climate crisis are often suffer its consequences first and worst. The result is that in many parts of the world the climate change struggle has become understood most clearly as a “climate justice” struggle.
These themes are apparent in the way migration issues have become understood on a global basis. See, for example:
