Holland Lecture Series
Wednesday, October 26
Speaker: Joseph H. Carens
Topic: “The Ethics of Immigration”
In a world of relatively closed borders like ours, citizenship is an inherited status and a source of privilege,” says Joseph H. Carens, an advocate of open borders and the author of the 2013 book, The Ethics of Immigration. In the United States, a country built on the concept of immigration, the movement to close our borders and restrict entry for new citizens has never been stronger. Carens is a political theorist who has written several books and over 70 articles or book chapters.
His work explores the broad ethical themes of issues related to immigration, multiculturalism and economic justice, including citizenship, refugees, economic migration and irregular migration. Carens is a professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto and teaches courses on the history of political thought and alternative approaches to political theory.
The Holland Lectures are free and open to the public, but you need to reserve a seat. Go to ticketomaha.com or call 402-345-0606
