Posted by Sandra Borden for Study of Ethics in Society

Kathy Purnell, immigration attorney and part-time instructor in in the School of Public Affairs and Administration, will be leading the virtual discussions. Register to receive the link.

How should democracies think about immigration? What ethical questions do immigration policies raise concerning belonging, justice, freedom and equality? Do democratic principles ultimately entail a moral commitment to open borders?
