In this paper, I argue in favor of the following claim: climate migrants should be considered as proper refugees, as protected by the 1951 Convention. The main argument in favor of this claim is the following. Refugees are entitled to discretionary admittance as their right to reside in their homeland or their habitual residence has been violated by persecutions and lack of State protection. Asylum is the proper reparation for this violation. Climate migrants, especially from sinking islands, have their right to residency violation, too. Thus, they deserve admittance.

Abstract

In this paper, I argue in favor of the following claim: climate migrants should be considered as proper refugees, as protected by the 1951 Convention. The main argument in favor of this claim is the following. Refugees are entitled to discretionary admittance as their right to reside in their homeland or their habitual residence has been violated by persecutions and lack of State protection. Asylum is the proper reparation for this violation. Climate migrants, especially from sinking islands, have their right to residency violation, too. Thus, they deserve admittance.
