We are pleased to announce the 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 people who are non-citizens;
- the normative dilemmas of allocating citizenship rights;
- the normative legitimacy of bounded nations and states;
- ethics of immigration.
The conference is jointly organized by the Institute of Philosophy of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Nationalism Studies Program at the Central European University and will take place in Budapest on February 3-4, 2017.
