CU Population Center Workshop – Climate, Migration & Health
Posted: 2/26/2018 (Conference)
The University of Colorado Population Center (CUPC), CU’s Institute of Behavioral Science and the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP), are hosting the 4th annual workshop on Climate, Migration and Health. This year’s subtheme is focused on trapped populations.
The two‐day workshop, held in Boulder, Colorado, will bring together approximately 10 researchers and policy communicators to discuss, and move forward, research on this important intersection.
Key is that researchers need only possess expertise in at least one aspect of the workshop. We aim to introduce scholars of migration‐climate, to scholars of climate‐health and to also hear from scholars on trapped populations.
We will spend much of the workshop brainstorming about knowledge gaps and beginning papers/proposals designed to fill those gaps. Contributors will include members of IUSSP’s Special Emphasis Panel on Climate, Migration and Health.
Funds are available for partial reimbursement for domestic travel and lodging.
Applicants must be post‐PhD and we aim for an interdisciplinary mix of junior and senior scholars.
To be considered for this workshop, please send a CV and a complete paper, working draft, or an extended abstract of a related research project by March 19, 2018. Decisions will be made by March 23th.
The conference organizers are Lori Hunter and Fernando Riosmena from the CU Population Center, Institute of Behavioral Science, CU Boulder. Please address questions to Lori.Hunter@colorado.edu.
Please submit papers to Jessica.LaRue@colorado.edu.
Location: University of Colorado, Boulder
