Michele Wucker -Linking Ethics and Self-Interest in Human Mobility

MICHELE WUCKER. "Linking Ethics and Self-Interest in Human Mobility," Policy Innovations, January 26, 2010. This article was part of a collection of essays from the Right to Move Conference at Sophia University on December 12-13, 2009. "Immigration rights advocates often make a moral argument for liberalizing immigration policy. No matter how good the moral case is, however, under the fraught politics of immigration the only arguments that will succeed are those that make a strong case for the self-interest of the host society. Yet the moral arguments are not necessarily opposed to self-interest; in fact, they often coincide."
