This paper examines how global trade shapes and intensifies disasters. Juxtaposing three basic, everyday consumer goods – a t- shirt, a brick, and a tea bag – with disasters manifesting in their respective global supply chains, it high-lights how climate change, local environmental degradation, and carbon emissions are dynamically shaped by consump...
Chapter
The book chapter looks at migrant migration and living circumstances in Bangladesh, one of the world's most vulnerable countries. The authors' description of the Anthropocene is both daunting and illuminating for understanding how climate change interacts with other socioeconomic variables, particularly life-threatening poverty. "Climate change doe...

Disasters like floods, droughts and landslides are a growing risk for millions of people in the global South. Yet in our globalising world, they are increasingly connected to processes originating in the global North. Focusing on imports from Cambodia, Sri Lanka and the South Asian ‘brick belt’, this project examines how British trade shapes the di...
Article
Full-text available
While material conditions of migrant populations on average tend to improve over time as they become established in new destinations, individual trajectories of material and subjective well‐being often diverge. Here, we analyse how social and environmental factors in the urban environment shape the subjective well‐being of migrant populations. We h...
Article
Full-text available
Migration represents a major transformation of the lives of those involved and has been transformative of societies and economies globally. Yet models of sustainability transformations do not effectively incorporate the movement of populations. There is an apparent migration-sustainability paradox: migration plays a role as a driver of unsustainabi...
Article
Environmental change influences population movements at various temporal and spatial scales. Yet individual decisions to migrate involve multiple motivations including perceived environmental risks and economic opportunities. We analyze how perceptions of environmental risks affect migration decisions and future migration intentions. We use cross-s...
Article
Full-text available
It is widely suggested that migration is a key mechanism linking climate change to violent conflict, particularly through migration increasing the risks of conflict in urban destinations. Yet climate change also creates new forms of insecurity through distress migration, immobility and vulnerability that are prevalent in urban destination locations...
Article
Full-text available
Addressing sources and drivers of precarity among marginalized migrant populations in urban spaces is central to making cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable for all. Yet dominant policy discourses continue to frame migrants as problematic causes of insecurity and tend to exclude them from policy processes. Deliberative democratic theor...

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure protection and well being of the migrants and members of their families RMMRU has been working tirelessly with the migrants at home and abroad.

Article
Full-text available
The science of resilience suggests that urban systems become resilient when they promote progressive transformative change to social and physical infrastructure. But resilience is challenged by global environmental risks and by social and economic trends that create inequality and exclusion. Here we argue that distortionary inequality and precarity...
Chapter
Full-text available
Deltas exemplify trends of great acceleration in the Anthropocene, including the shape of demographic and mobility transitions. The human core of the Anthropocene involves three principal phenomena: Increased human health evident at the population scale; movement of people to urban settlements; and growth in aggregate populations. Based on this res...
Chapter
In the mainstream policy discourse of Bangladesh, migration is generally viewed as a negative outcome of climate change (NAPA 2005 & 2006, BCCSAP 2008 & 2009). Climate change-related migration is perceived to have the potential to compromise recent economic and social achievements of the country. Such understanding led almost all the actors, i.e, t...
Article
Recent research into migration in Bangladesh has highlighted that people migrate for better livelihoods, not necessarily in response to climatic stresses and shocks. If facilitated appropriately, internal and international migration can help build adaptive capacity to future environmental and climatic hazards. In this framing, migration happens in...
Technical Report
This Situation Analysis provides an overview of the migration context and policy framework relating to internal and international migration in Bangladesh. It provides a snap shot of the research already undertaken and identifies research gaps that need to be addressed to better understand the development and migration nexus highlighted in this repo...
Experiment Findings
Full-text available
Interviews of selected migrant slum dwellers, the study attempts to unfold and identify various factors, including climatic stresses and shocks in the decision to migrate. While doing so, it analyses the major climatic stresses associated with the migrants areas of origin. It also looks at livelihoods pursued by the migrants and other household mem...
Article
Research into the climate change and migration nexus has often focussed solely on how people move in response to the impacts of variability and change in climate. This notion often ignores the nature of migration as a tried and tested livelihood choice amid a variety of socio-economic and environmental opportunities and limitations. This paper clos...
Article
Full-text available
Voluntary labour migration from Bangladesh is of two types, long-term and short-term. Since the 1970s, all kinds of restrictions have been imposed on long-term migration. However, short-term or temporary labour migration to the Middle East has increased significantly from the same time/ during this period. Particularly from the 1990s, short-term...
