As immigration continues to hold a prominent place in public debate, this breakfast seminar will provide an open discussion exploring both the moral foundations and practical implications of immigration from the perspective of integration policy.
IPPR is delighted to invite you to a breakfast seminar on Monday 9 December 2013 to explore the ethical principles of integration policy.
As the debate on immigration continues to hold a prominent place in the public sphere, there is an increasing desire for an open discussion that explores both the moral foundations and practical implications of immigration. This seminar will provide an opportunity to consider these matters from the perspective of integration policy. Key areas of discussion will include:
- What are the moral dilemmas of integration policy?
- What does good integration looks like?
- Should migrants have the option not to integrate?
- Are host populations morally obliged to adapt to migration?
This event will include:
- a keynote address by Joseph Carens, professor of political science at the University of Toronto and author of The Ethics of Immigration (Oxford University Press 2013)
- reflections from Rainer Bauböck, professor of social and political theory at the European University Institute, and Alice Sachrajda, qualitative research fellow at IPPR and co-lead of IPPR’s 'Everyday integration' project, and a question and answer session.
The event will be chaired by Phoebe Griffith, IPPR’s associate director for integration and communities. A light breakfast will be provided.
