Free Migration Project is co-sponsoring a seminar this Saturday, November 5, titled “Opening the Borders: Free Movement, Free People.” The daylong event will be held at the Rotunda near the campus of University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Speakers include Peter Jaworski, Alex Nowrasteh, Jacqueline Stevens, and Niloufar Khonsari. The event is sponsored by the Institute for Humane Studies, with the collaboration of Free Migration Project and Penn Effective Altruists.

From the IHS event site:

This seminar will cover one of the most contentious issues of this election year: immigration. From classical liberal to progressive perspectives, this nonpartisan event will bring scholars and students together to explore the idea of open borders, offering new insights and inspiration for tackling this important issue.

Tackle provocative questions like:

  • Is there a right to immigrate?
  • What can we do to address problems related to immigration?
  • What’s the historical relationship between states, nations, citizenship, and immigration?

Register now to join top professors and public intellectuals as they present economic, historical, philosophical, and legal cases for the freedom of mobility.

There should be some interesting conversations, and an opportunity for people of different ideological leanings to discuss a topic of common interest: open borders. I’ll post an update here after the seminar.
