Aliens, Citizens and Residents in a Changing World

Leonard Schapiro Memorial Lecture

Tuesday 7 May, 5.30pm
Old Theatre, Old Building

The worldwide movement of peoples across national borders in search of asylum or opportunities, jobs or refuge, is an undeniable consequence of globalisation. Yet neither our institutions nor our categories are adequate to deal with this new phenomenon. What then ought to be the principles of political incorporation and membership in liberal democracies?

Seyla Benhabib will be examining this question in her speech Aliens, Citizens and Residents in a Changing World on Tuesday 7 May at LSE.

Seyla Benhabib is Eugene Meyer Professor of Political Science and Philosophy, Yale University.

Professor Michael Moran, University of Manchester and editor of Government and Opposition, will chair the lecture. This event is free and open to all.
