The University of Colorado Population Center (CUPC), CU’s Institute of Behavioral Science, and the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP), are hosting the 3rd annual workshop on Climate, Migration and Health.  This year's sub-theme is focused on refugee movements.


The two-day workshop, held at the University of Colorado Population Center, in Boulder, Colorado, will bring together approximately 10 researchers and policy communicators to discuss, and move forward, research on this important intersection.


Key is that researchers need only possess expertise in at least one aspect of the workshop.  We aim to introduce scholars of migration-climate, to scholars of climate-health, and refugee scholars to each!


Applicants must have a current research project related to the workshop theme.  We will spend much of the workshop brainstorming about knowledge gaps and beginning papers/proposals designed to fill those gaps.


Researchers from social and natural sciences are encouraged to apply.  


Funds are available for partial reimbursement for domestic (US) travel and lodging.


Applicants must be post-PhD and we aim for an interdisciplinary mix of junior and senior scholars. 


To be considered for this workshop, please send a CV and a complete paper, working draft, or an extended abstract (including data description, methods, and preliminary results) by March 17th 2017.  Decisions will be made by March 24th.


The conference organizers are Lori Hunter and Fernando Riosmena from the Institute of Behavioral Science, CU Population Center, CU-Boulder.
