Kurzbeschreibung

States claim the right to choose who can come to their country. They put up barriers and expose migrants to deadly journeys. Those who survive are labelled 'illegal' and find themselves vulnerable and unrepresented. The international state system advantages the lucky few born in rich countries and locks others into poor and often repressive ones.

In this book, Christopher Bertram skilfully weaves a lucid exposition of the debates in political philosophy with original insights to argue that migration controls must be justifiable to everyone, including would-be and actual immigrants. Until justice prevails, states have no credible right to exclude and no-one is obliged to obey their immigration rules.

Bertram's analysis powerfully cuts through the fog of political rhetoric that obscures this controversial topic. It will be essential reading for anyone interested in the politics and ethics of migration.

"Bertram's excellent book provides a lucid and succinct overview of the contemporary philosophical debates about immigration. Its length, accessible style, and real world examples will make it appealing to undergraduates and the educated public, and its distinctive perspective will make it a "must read" for anyone working in the field."
--Joseph H. Carens, University of Toronto

"This is a distinctive and immensely accessible contribution to the philosophical debate about immigration. Clearly articulated and punchily argued, Bertram builds the case against the status quo while highlighting the moral and political costs of the current global migration regime of (near) unilateral state discretion."
--David Owen, University of Southampton
