Despite progress in understanding of the complex links between climate change and migration, the so-called ‘climate change-migration nexus’ occludes more than it reveals. This talk will analyze the variegated and complex interactions between climate change politics, resource grabs, and migration by drawing on case studies from Senegal and Cambodia. It will show how and why powerful framings on causes, impacts, and solutions translate into interventions that often increase, rather than alleviate, the very pressures they intend to redress.
