Cosmopolitan Duties and Domestic Consequences : The Case of Immigration
Montreal Political Theory Workshop – April 18th, 2008
Faculty Club, McGill University
Contemporary immigration regimes are increasingly scrutinized from a perspective of global justice. Do these regimes contribute to global injustice? Should we change immigration regimes in order to redistribute access to individual opportunities more fairly? Should we open our borders to the global poor? What would the consequences be for host societies? These are some of the important and timely questions the speakers at this year’s MPTW conference will address.
