CLASS 6: ARE IMMIGRATION/MOBILITY RESTRICTIONS JUST?
Are immigration restrictions just under utilitarian, libertarian, egalitarian, and contractarian theories?
According toCarens, what is the most compelling case for open borders, and in which circumstances
immigration restrictions can be justified? According to Walzer, what are the justifications for
immigration restrictions, and what are the exceptions under which immigration restrictions cannot
be justified? Do you agree with Carens or with Walzer? According to Miller, how do non-relational
theories of justice differ from relational theories of justice, and what are the consequences of it for
immigration restrictions? How should the type of immigration and physical location affect the
duties of justice? On what grounds, if any, do you think immigration should be restricted (e.g., to
preserve national culture, protect the native workers, enable democratic politics)? Among the four
methods to select immigrants according to Orgad/Ruthizer—universal selection, positive selection,
random selection, and racial selection with just compensation—which one is the most just and why?
