Andrea Simonelli provides the first in-depth evaluation of climate displacement in the field of political science, specifically global governance.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A refreshingly new, but sobering account of climate change displacement, that redefines refugee and migration studies in the context of a rapidly approaching global humanitarian crisis." Tim Cadman, Griffith University, Australia

"Congratulations to Dr. Simonelli for bringing a much-needed critical edge to research, policies, practices, and debates swirling around links (or lack thereof) between climate change and displacement. The case studies are not only a solid balance between top-down institutions and community experiences on the ground, but also links them, demonstrating the relevance, and often absence of relevance, of the former for the latter. Consequently, Dr. Simonelli provides powerful renditions of community perspectives and experiences while articulately decoupling, as per the chapter with such a title, hyperbole from fact." - Ilan Kelman, University College London, UK

"Andrea C. Simonelli's seminal work critically examines hyperboles of climate change and society and sheds a unique light on the problematique of climate-induced migration and displacement: Her governance perspective illuminates emerging actors and constraints, and the narrative of loss and damage as an alternative governance structure. This work has implications for post-2015 global governance of mobility (migration and refugees), humanitarian affairs, and climate policy as they relate to migration and displacement. Simonelli provides an historical view of institutions over time, and how these regimes have expanded functionally which helps readers track how the theme translates into policy and operations through intergovernmental organizations." - Koko Warner, United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security, Germany
