|Title:||Domination and migration: an alternative approach to the legitimacy of migration controls||Authors:||Honohan, Iseult||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7922||Date:||9-Jan-2014||Online since:||2016-09-13T17:18:19Z||Abstract:||Freedom as non-domination provides a distinctive criterion for assessing the justifiability of migration controls, different from both freedom of movement and autonomy. Migration controls are dominating insofar as they threaten to coerce potential migrants. Both the general right of states to control migration, and the wide range of discretionary procedures prevalent in migration controls, render outsiders vulnerable to arbitrary power. While the extent and intensity of domination varies, it is sufficient under contemporary conditions of globalization to warrant limits on states' discretion with respect to admission. Reducing domination requires, rather than removing all immigration restrictions or democratically justifying them to all, that there be certain constraints on states' freedom to control migration: giving migrants a publicly secured status somewhat analogous to that enjoyed by citizens, subjecting migration controls to higher legal regulation, and making immigration policies and decision contestable by those who are subject to them.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Journal:||Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy||Volume:||17||Issue:||1||Start page:||31||End page:||48||Copyright (published version):||2014 Taylor and Francis||Keywords:||Domination; Freedom; Republicanism; Immigration; Migration controls; Citizenship||DOI:||10.1080/13698230.2013.851482||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
