Twin Rights: The Flying Dutchman Asymmetry in Question
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Department of Philosophy. (Philosophy of Law)
2016 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation only (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Contemporary debates about whether the right of emigration entails a corresponding right of immigration often address this question in terms of a rights asymmetry. They focus on three interrelated aspects of rights theories which are at stake in international migration: (1) how rights relate to duties; (2) how the concept of a right depends upon its exercise; and (3) if certain rights entail other rights. This paper problematises the asymmetry and argues that one of the pioneering instantiations of individual rights in international law - the ius emigrandi,  enshrined in the treaties of Westphalia of 1648 - indeed suggests a correlation between the right to emigrate and a right to stay that has been forgotten. Although unexplored, this historical case seems to point to a practical, and hence theoretical, co-dependency between what I refer to as ‘twin rights’. Hence, I ask if this is a case of rights symmetry that has withered away with time.
