What would an ethical, but feasible, response to the refugee crisis look like? An exploration

Adam Dalgleish is a doctoral candidate at the University of Auckland. His primary research attempts to put modern refugee philosophy and policy analysis into dialogue, providing an account of what states owe to refugees that is both ethically robust and empirically informed. He argues that refugee philosophy should avoid its classic reliance on the philosophy of immigration and embrace the broader debates of the global justice literature. The result is an ethical account which includes, rather than excludes, adjacent obligations to the global needy and meshes refugee assistance with broader human rights aims such as development.
