  Add to Calendar 2018-01-11 9:30 2018-01-12 20:00 Europe/Paris The Ethics of Migration Beyond the Immigrant-Host State Nexus

Over the last three decades, normative political theorists have devoted much attention to the issue of migration. However, most of this literature has singularly focused on the relationship between individual migrants and their state of destination. Yet the constellation of actors involved in regulating international mobility comprises many more stakeholders. These include, among others, migrants’ countries of origin; subnational and supranational levels of government (such as municipalities, provinces and regional unions); sedentary citizens; commercial companies; and civil society organisations such as trade unions, churches, NGOs and activist groups. This conference provides a forum to explore the normative questions related to the role of such actors in the migration regime and the various relationships between them. The conference will address, among other things, the rights and duties of sending states in relation to their expatriate populations as well as the states that host them; the morality of resistance to migration control; the social and interpersonal ethics of migration; and the responsibilities of subnational, supranational and nonstate actors in migration governance.

Keynote speakers include Michael Blake (University of Washington), Valeria Ottonelli (University of Genova), David Owen (University of Southampton), Matthew Gibney (University of Oxford) and Rainer Bauböck (EUI).

The conference also features the photography exhibition ‘The Game’ by Mario Badagliacca, which can be found in the Cloister of the Badia Fiesolana.
