For this special issue, we seek a range of papers that examine human
migration as related to environmental context. We do so with the aim of
enhancing contemporary dialogue regarding the potential migratory
impacts of environmental change.
We aim for a collection of research representing both the “push” and the
“pull” of environmental factors, as well as other complex dimensions of
this association such as related to gender, social inequalities,
environmental security, and food security.
More generally, the research should improve broader understanding and
theory regarding the association between population and environment. We
encourage contributions based on quantitative as well as qualitative
data, as well as those that focus on policy dimensions.
/Population and Environment/ publishes research articles (both
full-length and research briefs), commentary and reviews/ /related to
the reciprocal links between population, natural resources, and the
natural environment, with the purpose of deepening scientific and policy
dialogue in this often complex area. The coverage is multidisciplinary,

all scales, local to global, is presented as are both theoretical and
