The Philosophy and Borders working group aims to bring together researchers in the fields of ethics, political theory, and social science on the topic of borders and migration. This includes researchers working on topics related to nation-states, nationalism, citizenship, territory, immigration, and forced migration. This first meeting will serve as an introduction to the project.
