The issue brief, the latest in a joint series launched by the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) and the International Organization for Migration’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, evaluates the current human-rights framework and its implementation.
The brief, Human Rights, Climate Change, Environmental Degradation and Migration: A New Paradigm, reviews legal options available to the international community to protect environmental migrants and recommends approaches for strengthening the current “soft law” approach. It also touches upon the situation in Asia and the Pacific, looking specifically at the legal challenges posed by the submergence of small island states and effects on other climate-vulnerable countries, such as Bangladesh.

Title: Prevention and treatment of neurosensory disturbance after lower third molar surgery
Abstract: Neurosensory deficit is a well-reported complication after lower third molar surgery. It is useful to know the outcomes of the available treatments for neurosensory deficit after third molar surgery. It is more important to prevent nerve injury from third molar surgery. A study on quality of life and psychological well-being was conducted to investigate their impact on patients with permanent neurosensory deficit after lower third molar surgery. The result of a study on the longitudinal outcome of microsurgical repair after nerve injury from lower third molar surgery will be presented. The long-term safety of coronectomy of lower third molar was investigated and the morbidities and root behavior will be presented.
