Andrew Baldwin seeks to extend understanding of the politics of climate change by considering how the category of race is being rewritten within discourses on climate change-induced migration. Recent research on climate change-induced migration figures the so-called climate change-induced migrant as neither threat nor victim but as having the capacity to improve the resilience of socio-ecological systems at various scales. A good example of this framing is found in the UK Foresight report on Migration and Global Environmental Change and in the work of the International Organisation for Migration. Part of the appeal of this characterisation lies in the way migration as a positive adaptive response to climate change works against crude, determinist depictions of mass migration catalysing political violence or crossing international boundaries as stateless bodies. This paper however argues that this characterisation has the inadvertent effect of racialising the maladaptive migrant by constructing maladaptation in the language of abnormality, and as a consequence, sets up the possibility for intensive policing of those thought to be at risk of maladaptation.
