Climate change contributes to people moving away from livelihoods or communities no longer considered viable or safe. Is this fair? Should those who contribute to climate change and its ill-effects be held responsible for the plight of those who leave? This book tackles these questions with reference to international law. It sets out what is understood about the relationship between climate change and people on the move. It also looks at how the issue has been tackled in the past from an international law standpoint, arguing that justice perspectives (what is fair?) are curiously lacking. The volume then examines whether people moving in response to climate change is a phenomenon for which others can somehow be held liable. It also looks at whether the phenomenon is distributed so unevenly (for example in the spatial sense) that fairness demands better sharing.
