This introductory chapter provides the outline of the book and the analytical framework to explore the interlinkages and dynamics between environmental and resource-related conflicts, migration, and the role of governance in this context. It introduces how and under what conditions environmental and resource-related problems lead to conflicts and how this can induce migration. It also reflects on the role of governance in this respect. Based on state-of-the-art research, the chapter highlights the importance of understanding the interdependencies between migration, environmental and resource conflicts, as well as the development and roles of national, regional and global migration governance regimes. While extensive academic literature exists on each strand of research, little are the academic exercises that bring them together, particularly from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Keywords:   environmental conflicts, natural resource conflicts, migration, governance, interdependencies, interdisciplinarity
