    On Immigration and Refugees.Sir Michael Dummett - 2001 - Routledge.
    Michael Dummett, philosopher and social critic, is also one of the sharpest and most prominent commentators and campaigners for the fair treatment of immigrants and refugees in Britain and Europe. This book insightfully draws together his thoughts on this major issue for the first time. Exploring the confused and often highly unjust thinking about immigration, Dummett then carefully questions the principles and justifications governing state policies, pointing out that they often conflict with the rights of refugees as laid down by (...)

    Michael Dummett, eminent filosoof en scherpzinnig maatschappijcriticus, pleit al vele jaren voor een eerlijke behandeling van immigranten en vluchtelingen in Europa. In dit inzichtelijke boek heeft hij voor de eerste keer al zijn gedachten over deze belangrijke kwestie gebundeld. Na een eerste verkenning van de verwarde en vaak zeer onrechtvaardige opvattingen over immigratie, onderwerpt Dummett de principes en rechtvaardigingen van het desbetreffende overheidsbeleid aan een nauwkeurig onderzoek, waarbij hij erop wijst dat dit beleid vaak in strijd is met de rechten (...)
