Global Justice, Freedom of Movement and Democratic Citizenship
Title: Global Justice, Freedom of Movement and Democratic Citizenship
Author: BAUBÖCK, Rainer
Citation: European Journal of Sociology/Archives européennes de sociologie, 2009, 50, 1, 1-31.
The article discusses three liberal arguments about freedom of movement: immigration as a remedy for global injustice in the distribution of opportunities, freedom of movement as an integral aspect of individual autonomy, and immigration control as implied in democratic self-determination and citizenship. The article shows how these apparently irreconcilable stances can be reconstructed as partially overlapping once we realize that liberal citizenship provides not only reasons for closure but entails a bundle of mobility rights and is open for access by migrant stakeholders.
