Who gets to talk about climate-linked migration in the media?

When journalists write about climate-linked migration, who do they turn to for information? Who do they interview, and who are their trusted sources?

These are vital questions as the people the media turn to are – in part – the people who get to define the debate about climate-linked migration.

Crucially it is these sources of information and comment that are shaping the debate about climate-linked migration amongst the wider public. This is the subject of new research published this week as part of the Research Handbook on Climate Change, Migration and the Law.
