People in Motion - Oral Presentation and Discussion

Climate change is seen in public debate as an increasingly major factor of migration. In connection with the Arab Spring, the war in Syria and the terrorist insurgency Boko Haram in Nigeria, climate change also plays an important role for migrating. But is this simple causal explanation enough to explain such a multi-faceted and multicausal phenomenon as migration? Does climate change really cause global migration or is the overemphasis on climate misleading and distracting from the actual immediate causes of conflict?
