Tag: Religion and Environmentally-Induced Displacement in Latin America and the Caribbean

This project seeks to advance understanding of the religious response to environmental displacement throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.  Its explorations include religion’s role at each phase of environmental migration, from departure or displacement, during transit, to arrival and adaptation. In the process, this project examines how different religious traditions inform individual and community responses to environmental dislocations. It is one of the four projects examining religion in Latin America by the Center for Latin American and Latino Studies (CLALS) at American University.
