PHILOSOPHY CLUB: PHILOSOPHY CLUB: THE MORALITY AND POLITICS OF IMMIGRATION - AN OPEN DISCUSSION
In recent years, the issue of immigration has taken a central place in Western political discourse, as competing ideologies and major migration events such as refugee crises have placed great pressure on governments. In light of this, the PHI club wonders: What are the underlying worldviews and philosophies determining how nations handle immigration? Are borders mere constructs that ought to be opened in the interest of expanding individual freedom? Or is it important, for some reason or another, for borders to be maintained and immigration controlled, at least to some extent? This week, we will hold an open-ended conversation that will seek to illuminate some of the intellectual grounds for positions and arguments concerning immigration. We offer two written pieces to help guide us: for a shorter overview, we recommend the following, from the Notre Dame Philosophical Review - Click here
And, for a longer treatment, we invite you to browse through some sections of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy’s entry on immigration: Click here
