Entanglements in migration: climate, violence, and poverty in the Northern Triangle
MetadataShow full item record
The study of migration is characterized by a multidisciplinary approach. Violence, poverty, and climate change are often analyzed as separate drivers of migration, with some research analyzing these factors in pairs. There is, however, a gap in the literature discussing migration in a multi-variable way. Anna Tsing’s model of entanglement offers a more nuanced approach. Focusing on places where drivers influence each other broadens the lens in which we view migration, and better reflects the actual reasons behind it. We can see this in analyzing migration in the Northern Triangle, where violence, poverty, and climate change interact.
