On Immigration and Refugees

On Immigration and Refugees

Michael Dummett, philosopher and social critic, was one of the sharpest and most prominent commentators and campaigners for the fair treatment of immigrants and refugees in Britain and Europe. This book insightfully draws together his thoughts on this major issue for the first time. Exploring the confused and often highly unjust thinking about immigration, Dummett then carefully questions the principles and justifications governing state policies, pointing out that they often conflict with the rights of refugees as laid down by the Geneva Convention. With compelling and often moving examples, On Immigration and Refugees points a new way forward for humane thinking and practice about a problem we cannot afford to ignore.

Critical Perspectives on Immigrants and Refugees

Critical Perspectives on Immigrants and Refugees

As civil conflict and increasingly dire economic situations spread across areas of the globe, refugees have left their homes in countries such as Afghanistan, Syria, and Somalia in search of a better future for themselves and their children. Their often-dangerous plights have received much media attention and have led to increased calls for international humanitarian aid, and, in some cases, for increased border control. In Critical Perspectives on Immigrants and Refugees, students will analyze this important issue and form their own conclusions based on opinions and data from experts, advocacy groups, and the media.
