The Dilemma of Borders

A political philosophy of immigration
Publisher Éditions EHESS
COLLECTION Cas de figure
Arguments for democratizing borders.

The borders of nation-states are problematic. While they can protect citizens and ensure the continuity of institutions, they can also result in the deaths of thousands of people and scattered forms of domination. How should we view this dilemma that Western democracies face? What should be done when freedom of movement and the equality of peoples are inconsistent with closed, discriminatory, and exclusionary practices? Should we redefine our values or change our practices?
