States claim the right to choose who can come to their country.
They put up barriers and expose migrants to deadly journeys. Those
who survive are labelled 'illegal' and find themselves vulnerable
and unrepresented. The international state system advantages the
lucky few born in rich countries and locks others into poor and
often repressive ones. In this book, Christopher Bertram skilfully
weaves a lucid exposition of the debates in political philosophy
with original insights to argue that migration controls must be
justifiable to everyone, including would-be and actual immigrants.
Until justice prevails, states have no credible right to exclude
and no-one is obliged to obey their immigration rules. Bertram's
analysis powerfully cuts through the fog of political rhetoric that
obscures this controversial topic. It will be essential reading for
anyone interested in the politics and ethics of migration.
