Our research group 'Environment. Migration. Resilience' offers a fresh perspective on the environment-migration nexus. It starts from the assumption that, regardless of the accuracy of the projections of future environmental changes, migration is already occuring and will continue to be a major dynamic of global change. We seek to interrogate how migration-induced intensifying translocal relations alter the environment and the capacity to deal with environmental changes in the places of origin of migrants.
