Training School on Field Research Methods in Environmentally-Induced Migration


    As part of COST Action IS1101 Climate change and migration: knowledge, law and policy, and theory, COST Action Network and UNU-EHS organize a training school on field research methods.

    The focus of the Training School lies on empirical social science methods, both qualitative and quantitative, used in researching climate change and migration. The Training School will begin with a critical introduction to climate change and migration research, addressing conceptual challenges and problems of definition, describing approved research pathways, and offering an overview of the current state of research, knowledge gaps and legal aspects of environmentally induced migration.

    The Training School is targeted at European based PhD students in the early stages of their dissertation project but is also appropriate for proficient Master students in their final year. Post-graduate Master students planning to continue their education in the respective field are welcome to apply, too. Applicants should be actively researching or planning research within the field of climate change and migration. Besides the methodological input, the Training School aims to provide a platform for sharing experiences and for networking. Trainees should have a social science background. The Training School will be held in English.
