The next event in the Harney Lecture Series in Ethnicity "The Case for Open Borders", featuring Christopher Freiman, will be held on February 25, 2020 2-4pm.
Abstract: Countries have a moral obligation to liberalize their immigration policies. Immigration restrictions violate people's freedom of movement and deprive them of opportunities to become dramatically richer. Moreover, none of the standard objections to open borders--the potential economic costs, special obligations to fellow citizens, states' rights of self-determination, and so on--are successful. The talk concludes with a discussion of the relevance of immigration policy to issues like climate change and poverty relief.
