In the first report of its kind, analysis reveals that the media debate around climate change and migration has not yet become entrenched. The UK Climate Change and Migration Coalition, who carried out the research, have used the analysis to produce the first ever guidance for organisations on effectively communicating the complex connections between climate change and migration.

Both climate change and migration attract a significant degree of public and media attention. Together they represent a potentially explosive combination that could inflame already heated debates. The report released today argues that without a concerted effort to communicate the issues effectively the debate could be hijacked by political interests opposed to human rights and action on climate change.

The Heinrich Böll Foundation released a study written by Dr. Ben Hayes from Statewatch and Mathias Vermeulen (editor of The Lift- Legal Issues in the Fight Against Terrorism blog) entitled “Borderline – The EU’s new border surveillance initiatives: assessing the costs and fundamental rights implications of EUROSUR and the ‘Smart Borders’ Proposals.”

Details form the Preface:

The upheavals in North Africa have lead to a short-term rise of refugees to Europe, yet, demonstrably, there has been no wave of refugees heading for Europe. By far most refugees have found shelter in neighbouring Arab countries. Nevertheless, in June 2011, the EU’s heads of state precipitately adopted EU Council Conclusions with far-reaching consequences, one that will result in new border policies ‘protecting’ the Union against migration. In addition to new rules and the re-introduction of border controls within the Schengen Area, the heads of state also insisted on upgrading the EU’s external borders using state-of-art surveillance technology, thus turning the EU into an electronic fortress.
