dc.description.abstractStudies show that the devastating effect of climate change results in displacement of people throughout the world. The causal link between climate change and displacement is greatly disputed among scholars, it is undeniable facts that, developing countries, which are less responsible for climate change, suffer from the effects of climate change and are forced to bear the greatest burden of providing protection for climate refugees. The increasing cross-border displaced persons are not getting appropriate protection from today s international laws, as they don t fall under the refugee definition provided by the existing international and regional refugee conventions. However, there have been arguments among scholars in the necessity of new laws to govern such new category of refugees. Accordingly, in order to provide adequate legal protection, proposals have been made for sharing responsibility among the developed countries, which are most responsible for causing climate change. Fortunately, opportunities are at hand that the international community may come up with possible solutions at the final climate change negotiation scheduled to be held in December 2015 in Paris. Therefore, this thesis will analyze whether the existing laws are able to extend their protection to climate induced refugees in the form of complimentary protection or the necessity for having new laws that will govern such new category of refugees.eng
