Conference summary

 






The conference aims to address some of the legal, political and ethical challenges posed by transnational migration that so far have received limited attention in the theoretical literature on the subject. Legal and political theorists—in particular, those working in the so-called Anglo-American tradition—have been slow to give migration its due attention. Hence, a number of pressing issues, such as the rights of undocumented migrants, responsibility for refugee populations, and “brain drain” remain under-researched from a normative perspective.

 
 
The conference aims to fill this gap in the literature and to provide a forum for sustained, interdisciplinary analysis by leading scholars and emerging researchers in the fields of law, social and political theory, and philosophy. The papers address issues which fall into two broad categories:
  1. Entry and Exit;
  2. Statelessness, Citizenship, and Naturalisation.
