Ethics & International Affairs, Volume 20.3

In this issue's special section on Citizenship and Equality, Devesh Kapur and John McHale examine the problem of brain drain—the emigration of skilled individuals from developing countries—and assess what a response guided by cosmopolitan principles should be. In turn, Will Kymlicka and Keith Banting argue that ethnic diversity and pro-multiculturalism policies pose no inherent danger to the viability of the welfare state. And James A. Goldston examines the nexus between racial discrimination and citizenship status, concluding that loopholes in human rights protection for noncitizens allow covert racial discrimination.

This issue also features a symposium on Larry May's important new work on the ethics of war crimes tribunals, Crimes Against Humanity. The symposium features contributions from David Luban, Jamie Mayerfeld, and Andrew Altman and a response by May.
