Abstract

The introduction sets out the principal questions tackled in the book. It underlines the importance of these for international law and the international community, both from a political and legal standpoint. The phenomenon of climate-induced migration is a serious challenge that requires a complex and multifaceted response. This chapter synthetically points out the risks and opportunities linked to addressing this phenomenon from an international viewpoint. It furthermore provides the reader with a brief outline of the structure of the book.
