On Immigration and Refugees (Thinking in Action)

Sir Mic Dummett

Michael Dummett is one of the most influential philosophers of the post-war period.On Immigration and Refugeesdraws together his thoughts on this major issue for the first time. Dummett asks what rights opponents of immigration actually uphold, what principles govern a state's policies on immigration and how this often conflicts with the rights of refugees as laid down by the Geneva Convention. He shows how arguments used in support of curtailing immigration, such as perceived threats to the national culture, the swelling of local population levels, or that it is good for race relations, are often completely ungrounded.
