The Right To Migrate: Between A Moral & A Legal Right
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Department of Philosophy. (Philosophy of Law)
2015 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation only (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to query about the extent to which the moral right to migrate can be considered a legal right. Described by many as a natural right, the fundamental assumptions about what a natural right is has changed significantly in history - especially in the history of political and legal ideas - and so has the very notion of ‘nature’ which sits at the heart of both classical and modern natural law traditions. Hence, this paper asks what is the notion of nature that is presumed in the moral claim that migration is a ‘natural’ right. In order to respond to this question, I explore the connection between the classical ius migrandi and the modern freedom of movement, or right to free mobility, as the most recent corollary of that ancient principle. Freedom of movement has been hailed as a key aspect of the various human rights regimes that have developed since the Second World War and, overall, as a key component of any understanding of individual freedom and collective emancipation.
