Discretionary Immigration Policy and Multidimensional Domination

Dates:
  • Tue 24 Apr 2018 17.30 - 19.00
  Add to Calendar 2018-04-24 17:30 2018-04-24 19:00 Europe/Paris Discretionary Immigration Policy and Multidimensional Domination

The main argument of this contribution is that immigration policy represents instances of domination on a wide spectrum of individuals and political communities. Complementing an emerging neorepublican literature on immigration, this contribution focuses on the procedural discretion claimed by states of destination. It introduces the concept of jurisdiction as key concept to distinguish 4 paradigmatic situations which all display risks of domination. In each situation, the state of destination arbitrarily interferes with individuals and political communities. In light of this republican reconstruction, numerous mechanisms, which are already at least partially present in immigration law could be identified and justified as anti-domination measures. Existing EU law shall be drawn upon to illustrate both the theoretical and practical relevance of this republican account.
