Report on “Climate Change, Migration and Human Security in Southeast Asia”

Published By: S. Rajaratnam School Of International Studies | Published Date: May, 26 , 2011

The Centre for Non-Traditional Security (NTS) Studies in the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS), organised a study-group meeting to address the topic of ‘Climate Change, Migration and Human Security in Southeast Asia’ on 26 May 2011 in Singapore. The project was funded by the MacArthur Foundation’s Asia Security Initiative and represented perhaps the first efforts in Singapore to discuss the nexus of climate change and migration in an in-depth regional context. The purpose of this meeting was to examine the nature of possible climate-induced migration in the region; to consider the ways in which such migratory patterns could be framed as security issues; to critically assess what conceptions of security are most germane to the connections between climate change and migration; and to investigate how security consequences, particularly from human security perspectives, can be managed
