Cosmopolitan Duties and Domestic Consequences : The Case of Immigration

Montreal Political Theory Workshop – April 18th, 2008

Contemporary immigration regimes are increasingly scrutinized from a perspective of global justice. Do these regimes contribute to global injustice? Should we change immigration regimes in order to redistribute access to individual opportunities more fairly? Should we open our borders to the global poor? What would the consequences be for host societies? These are some of the important and timely questions the speakers at this year’s MPTW conference will address.

Devoirs cosmopolitiques et conséquences internes : le cas de l’immigration

Atelier de philosophie politique de Montréal – 18 avril 2008

Les régimes d’immigration contemporaine font de plus en plus l’objet d’une analyse critique du point de vue de la justice globale. Ces régimes d’immigration contribuent-ils à l’injustice globale? Devraient-ils être modifiés afin de répartir de manière plus équitable les ressources et opportunités individuelles? Devrions-nous ouvrir nos frontières aux plus démunis de la planète? Quelles seraient les conséquences d’une telle ouverture pour les sociétés d’accueil? Voilà quelques-unes des questions importantes et pertinentes qui interpelleront les intervenants de la conférence annuelle de l’APPM.
