Regândirea conceptului de refugiat în contextul schimbărilor climatice: câteva abordări terminologice și jurisprudențiale

Marinela Elisabeta Popescu


Climate change poses a major threat to human life. Although millions of people are forced to flee due to climate-related disasters and sea level rise, they do not qualify for refugee status. This study aims to analyze the definitions of refugee in vari­ous international instruments and the definitions given by international organizations in the field of migration. Furthermore, the study sought to identify whether the people affected by the effects of climate change could be beneficiaries of international pro­tection. Finally, the study proposes a slightly more precise definition for climate refugees.

Cuvinte cheie
