Book review: Mayer, Benoît and Francois Crépeau. 2017. Research Handbook on Climate Change, Migration, and the Law (Edgard Elgar: Cheltenham, 512 pages)
Benoît Mayer and François Crépeau's edited volume, Research Handbook on Climate Change, Migration and the Law, is, in many ways, an outstanding book. In a collection of 20 chapters, authored by experts from different fields and geographical backgrounds, the book compiles the most recent perspectives on the debate surrounding the development of legal protection to climate-induced migrants. The book is of common interest to academics in the fields of law, political and social sciences, and political philosophy, but also to anyone concerned in getting a detailed overview of the current challenges related to the interplay between climate migration and the law. The views of the various contributors are at times conflicting and thus expose the complexity of the normative debate attempting to establish how law should respond to climate-induced migration.
