After the Backlash: Reconsidering the Ethics, Politics, and Law of Borders and Migration
May 9, 2019—May 11, 2019 · 300 Wallace
Mellon-Sawyer Seminar Series
How, if at all, should we rethink migration policy in light of the backlash against migrants in the US and Europe? Has the backlash revealed genuine but neglected concerns? Can civic nationalist concerns — special obligations toward fellow citizens, special concern with shared history and culture — be reconciled with cosmopolitan duties to human beings in dire need outside our borders?
Keynote Presentations are on Thursday, May 9, 2019 in Friend Center 101 at 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM
