Miller presents readers with a comprehensive examination of immigration, looking at the various core issues involved in the contemporary policy questions surrounding the migration of peoples from the developing world to Western democracies from the perspective of political philosophy. The book examines the intersection of cosmopolitanism, compatriot partiality, and human rights; open borders; closed borders; the plight of refugees; economic migration; the integration of migrants; and a wide variety of other related issues.
