Energy-Access and Forced Migration (Routledge Studies in Energy Transitions)
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 31 Jan 2020
This edited collection brings together a selection of expert authors and draws on a wide range of case studies, geographies, and perspectives to explore the links between forced migration and energy access.
This book addresses the paucity of academic study on how energy is delivered to the millions of people currently displaced, either by force, or as a result of disasters, climate change, famine and drought. The contributions throughout assess the current energy governance regimes, models of delivery, and innovative solutions that are dictating how energy is - and can be - provided to those who have been forcibly displaced. By bringing together author-teams of practitioners, academics, businesses, and policy-makers, this collection encourages interdisciplinary dialogue about the best way of approaching energy provision for the forcibly displaced.
This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of energy access and policy, environmental justice and equity, and migration and refugee studies.
