From the Apocalypse to the possibilities.
New stories about immigrants and the environment

Marco Armiero (EMiGR), Richard Tucker (Michigan University), Sergio Prieto Díaz (Espacio de Estudios Migratorios-EEM)
With this special issue, we have made a call to rethink of the connections linking migration and
the environment. Others are thinking about those connections and there are building their own
narratives. A green-washing of the anti-immigration discourse is advancing in the US, Canada, and
probably will soon reach Europe.
