One Planet: Climate change, migration, and border militarization

Dec 9, 2018

 


On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet series, journalist Todd Miller will discuss his book, Storming the Wall: Climate Change, Migration, and Homeland Security.

According to the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre, a person is more likely to be displaced by environmental forces than by war. Without a global legal framework on climate refugees and more spending on the militarization of border reinforcement, how should we address the plight of climate refugees?

Guest:

Todd Miller, award winning independent journalist, and author of Storming the Wall: Climate Change, Migration, and Homeland Security
