In The Ethics of Migration: An Introduction Adam Hosein systematically and comprehensively examines the ethical issues surrounding the concept of immigration. The book addresses important questions such as:

  • Can states claim a right to control their borders and if so to what extent?
  • Is detention ever a justifiable means of border enforcement?
  • Which criteria may states use to determine who should be admitted into their territory and how do these criteria interact with existing hierarchies of race and gender?
  • Who should be considered a refugee?
  • Which rights are migrants who are present in a territory entitled to?
  • Is there an acceptable way to design a temporary worker program?
  • When, if ever, are amnesties for unauthorized migrants appropriate?

Featuring case studies throughout, this textbook provides a philosophical introduction to an incredibly topical issue studied by students within the fields of political philosophy, applied ethics, global studies, politics, law, sociology and public policy.
