The Ethics of Immigration


This course focuses on the normative challenges posed by contemporary immigration in liberal democratic states in Europe and North America. We will explore questions about access to citizenship, the rights of residents, guestworker programs, undocumented immigrants, family reunification, refugees, and the underlying legitimacy (or not) of restrictions on immigration.


The primary text is a book manuscript that I am completing on this topic. This will be supplemented by articles by other authors.
