Abstract "This paper makes the case that the ‘environmental migration’ nexus has no intrinsic capacity to provide us an operable understanding that can guide policy work. It then attempts to account for the continuing efforts to substantiate the "issue-area" despite a range of widely noted problems with its conceptual basis. It concludes by outlining, in light of the preceding arguments, what role remains for social scientists." (author's abstract)
