We are pleased to inform you about the seminars organized by the Center for International Studides and Development's partner university - CY Cergy Paris Université.
On Thursday 14 October 2021 (online - 2.30-4pm, Paris time), the "History of Ideas and History of Knowledge" research seminar (AGORA research center, CY Cergy Paris Université) will have the pleasure of receiving:
Prof. Chandran Kukathas (Singapore Management University) for his book Immigration and Freedom (Princeton University Press, 2021).
"Immigration is often seen as a danger to western liberal democracies because it threatens to undermine their fundamental values, most notably freedom and national self-determination. In this book, however, Chandran Kukathas argues that the greater threat comes not from immigration but from immigration control. Kukathas shows that immigration control is not merely about preventing outsiders from moving across borders. It is about controlling what outsiders do once in a society: whether they work, reside, study, set up businesses, or share their lives with others. But controlling outsiders — immigrants or would-be immigrants — requires regulating, monitoring, and sanctioning insiders, those citizens and residents who might otherwise hire, trade with, house, teach, or generally associate with outsiders".
Discussant: Prof. David Owen (University of Southampton).
