Details

This workshop in political theory will look at the ethics of resistance to immigration controls and the rights and duties of migrants and citizens in the face of restrictions on free movement and state policies that criminalize solidarity with those seeking sanctuary. The workshop will discuss resistance to detention, civil disobedience in the face of state controls and deportation, the permissibility of smuggling, and the tension between the law's claims to obedience and conflicting duties including those of justice, humanity, solidarity and rescue.

Confirmed speakers: Udit Bhatia (Oxford), Mollie Gerver (Essex), Guy Aitchison (KCL), Patti Lenard (Ottawa), Jenny Allsopp (SOAS), Yasha Maccanico (Bristol).
