The Kaldor Centre Virtual Conference 2021, Whose move? Addressing migration and displacement in the face of climate change, will bring together extraordinary speakers and delegates from around the world from 19 to 21 October.
This truly global event takes participants to the cutting edge of thinking at an urgent time in policymaking. Whatever the outcome of the upcoming Glasgow talks, people will continue to move away from the impacts of climate change and disasters – often because they have no choice. Where will they go and how? Will the law be a help or a hindrance? How do we make practical progress?
The Kaldor Centre Virtual Conference 2021 is about sharing evidence, experience, and solutions. Register now to hear panellists offering rare insight – from negotiations, litigation, research, policymaking and activism – and join the conversation about advancing real change for people at risk.
