Was heißt 'liberale Migrationsethik'?

Lecture and Discussion (in German)


With Prof. Dr Volker Heins (Institut für Politikwissenschaft, Universität Duisburg-Essen), Prof. Dr Reinhard Merkel (Deutscher Ethikrat).

Moderation: Prof. Dr Anja Weiss (Institut für Soziologie, Universität Duisburg-Essen)


“What does liberal migration ethics mean?” Is there a right to global freedom of movement or must this right give way to the sovereignty of liberal nation states that claim a right to close their borders in the interest of the common good? Is there a specific liberal answer to this question?

Volker Heins and Reinhard Merkel discuss this matter in a debate.
