On 1st June 2023, the Belmont Forum Collaborative Research Action ‘Human Mobility, Global Challenges and Resilience in an Age of Social Stress’ started its work.
Together, 11 research partners from 8 countries will take part in the transdisciplinary research project over the coming 3 years, combining disciplinary expertise in earth and climate science, sustainability studies, political science, sociology, psychology, economics, anthropology, law, and human rights to address some of the greatest global challenges.
Sarah Louise Nash from the University of Continuing Education Krems will lead the project cluster ‘Governing Climate Mobilities’, which will examine how climate mobilities (including displacement, migration, planned relocation, and immobility) are being governed across different policy areas. This research, funded by the Austrian Science Fund, will be at the cutting edge of policy research on climate mobilities and will serve as a key science-policy interface for the project.
