Ethics & International Affairs Volume 29.2 (Summer 2015): "The Ethics of Immigration" by Joseph Carens

Jun 17, 2015

The Ethics of Immigration, Joseph Carens (New York: Oxford University Press, 2013), 384 pp., $35 cloth.

Review by Michael Blake

Joseph Carens is arguably the most important figure working today on the normative dimensions of migration, and he deserves credit for having worked out before anyone else that migration has these normative dimensions. The current ethical debate about the legitimacy of migration controls would not exist but for his writing. We have been waiting for the book-length version of his arguments, though, for quite a long time. At last that book has been released, and it has justified its long gestation.
