IMI's Oliver Bakewell has contributed a chapter to a new book on the migration-displacement nexus

The 'migration-displacement nexus' is a new concept intended to capture the complex and dynamic interactions between voluntary and forced migration, both internally and internationally.

Khalid Koser and Susan Martin have edited a collection of work on this topic. The book has three main purposes:

to focus empirical attention on previously understudied topics, such as internal trafficking and the displacement of foreign nationals, using case studies including Afghanistan and Iraq

to highlight new challenges, including urban displacement and the effects of climate change

to explore gaps in current policy responses and elaborate alternatives for the future.

The second chapter, entitled 'Conceptualising displacement and migration: Processes, conditions, and categories', is written by Oliver Bakewell.
