Climate change is predicted to lead to the increase and the frequency in natural disasters. The increase of such extreme weather events may lead to forced human displacements migrations, involving the United Nations High Commission for Refugees and the International Organization for Migration responsibilities’ on the international scene. How are the UNHCR and IOM international organizations, both specialized in humanitarian and migrations fields, dealing with climate change? Are they moving beyond their original mandates? Do their recent humanitarian actions in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Haiti post-natural hazards may have created a “precedent” in international public law, which could enlarge their power of action? Key words: Schengen, discourse analysis, border kontrols, crisis.
