Présentation

Recherche

The objective of my thesis is to open new paths for the integration of socio-psychological factors into migration-environment research.

 

During the recent years, the link between migration and environmental/climate change has become clearer. Researchers have shown that migration is driven by a multiplicity of factors (economic, political, social, etc.) among which the environment plays a significative role. Most researches focus on explaining migration linked to environmental factors on a macro scale. Researchers dedicated to micro processes overlook the socio-psychological factors at play between individuals and their environment and the role of this relationship in migration decision-making. Some researches explore people perception of environmental problems. I focus on people emotions in their everyday interaction with their environment. First, I develop a data gathering method with a game that allows for the collection of emotions data linked with the environment and taking into account the very social nature of emotions. Secondly, I test the relevance of measuring emotions to create an indicator of « place utility », which reflects the satisfaction of individuals by being integrated at some position in space. Place utility is expected to play a role in migration (non-)decision making. Third, I suggest considering the concept of landscape -in its definition as social space, that is, the everyday lived space of different elements of people environments like the school, the market, etc.- in environment-migration research.
