Workshop «Immigration, Integration and Membership» Ethik-Zentrum der Universität Zürich 24.-25.2.2012

26 01 2012

Organisation: Anna Goppel (Zürich) und Robin Celikates (Amsterdam)

mit Tariq Modood (Bristol), Christian Joppke (Bern), David Owen (Southampton), Sarah Fine (Cambridge), Arash Abizadeh (Montreal) u.a.

For a long time, immigration has not played any significant role in ethics and political philosophy. In the late 1980s and early 1990s this changed, though slowly and rather selectively. Many issues concerning the moral and political status as well as the rights and duties of immigrants within their new societies are still widely ignored. This also concerns the concepts presupposed by any adequate discussion of these issues, some of which have played a role within debates on multiculturalism but now seem to require reformulation – in the face of another wave of anti-immigrant populism in Europe.
At this workshop we will look both into specific claims and duties of immigrants and their new societies, respectively, and into the concepts that are fundamental to these discussions. This involves three strongly related aspects: (a) specific rights and duties; (b) integration, membership, and belonging; (c) multiculturalism. All these aspects will be addressed in their political, legal and cultural dimensions, from both a more philosophical and normative as well as a more sociological and empirical perspective.
