Protecting People Crossing Borders in the Context of Climate Change Normative Gaps and Possible Approaches

Walter Kälin and Nina Schrepfer

This paper first presents the background to and context of current discussions and approaches surrounding climate change-related human mobility across borders (Part 1) before identifying the normative gaps in the present international protection regime together with institutional and operational shortcomings (Part 2). It argues that while a relationship between climate change, environmental events and displacement/migration exists, direct causalities are difficult to establish.
