Philosophy of borders: nations, states and immigration
February 3-4, 2017.
We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the forthcoming conference entitled Philosophy of borders: nations, states and immigration.
Confirmed keynote speaker: David Miller (University of Oxford)
The issues of citizenship, immigration, global justice and the rights and duties of states in relation to citizens and non-citizens are not only the subject of recent public discourse but are permanent topics in normative political philosophy. The conference aims to discuss some of the following issues:
- the obligations of states to citizens and non-citizens;
- the normative dilemmas of allocating citizenship rights;
- the normative legitimacy of bounded nations and states;
- ethics of immigration.
The conference organizers invite scholars and researchers to submit their proposals discussing these normative issues from a philosophical, historical or interdisciplinary perspective. Submissions from advanced doctoral students are also welcome.
