In this public event, Professor Walzer will focus on the US debate, arguing against open borders but asking the UK and the US to consider their current immigration policies. He also issues a warning about future refugees and immigrants generated by global warming for which the US and UK are unprepared.
Professor Michael Walzer, Professor Emeritus of Social Science, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton. As a professor, author, editor, and lecturer, Michael Walzer has addressed a wide variety of topics in political theory and moral philosophy: political obligation, just and unjust war, nationalism and ethnicity, economic justice and the welfare state. His books (among them Just and Unjust Wars, Spheres of Justice, The Company of Critics, Thick and Thin: Moral Argument at Home and Abroad, On Toleration, and Politics and Passion) and essays have played a part in the revival of practical, issue-focused ethics and in the development of a pluralist approach to political and moral life.
