Immigration and Democracy

Sarah Song

Oxford Political Theory

  • Develops a new "realistically utopian" theory of immigration that offers an intermediate position between open borders and closed borders
  • Integrates normative reflection on the values and principles relevant to public debate about immigration with accessible analysis of immigration law and policy
  • Defends the right of states to control immigration while also arguing that states have an obligation to open their doors to refugees and migrants seeking to be reunited with family
