Feasibility and Immigration


Conference Announcement

Theme: Feasibility and Immigration
Type: International Workshop
Institution: School of Philosophy, Australian National University
Location: Canberra, ACT (Australia)
Date: 23.–24.4.2018



Immigration has become a central topic in political philosophy in
recent years. The concept of feasibility has also begun to attract a
great deal of interest with a number of political philosophers now
paying attention to its nature and appropriate role in normative
inquiry. Yet, for the most part, the literatures on the two topics
have developed independently and there has been no serious attempt to
bring them together. This workshop aims to remedy that by bringing
together leading scholars working in both areas to explore the role
that feasibility considerations should play in informing normative
thinking about immigration.

Dates: Monday 23 and Tuesday 24 April 2018
Location: Carberry Room, Crawford School, ANU
