Title: "Shifting Borders of Justice: Territory, Market, Migration"
Abstract: Contributing to debates about migration and globalization, this lecture explores how and why the multiple borders of justice—territorial, legal, and normative—are shifting. These dramatic transformations unsettle ideas about waning sovereignty just as they illustrate the limits of unilateral, refortified bordering responses. As an alternative to these established theoretical poles and as part of a broader attempt to overcome policy deadlocks at the domestic and international level, Professor Shachar proposes a new approach to human mobility and security in a world of persistent inequality.
