About this book

This book discusses the ethical dilemmas of migration in the era of globalization. Centered on the recent influx of large numbers of migrants and refugees to the United States and Europe and viewed through the lens of the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit and the United Nations Summit on Refugees and Migrants, this book focuses on the problems posed by globalized migration and analyzes proposed responses. Using prominent ethical theories and moral principles, such as Utilitarianism, duty, justice, and integrity, the book proposes a framework for analyzing decision-making by migrants and policymakers and formulating equitable policies to address the migration crisis. Drawing attention to the ethical dilemmas that migrants and policymakers experience, this book fills a gap in the literature and enriches it, adding to the economic, political, and human rights issues that are traditionally part of the migration discussion. Appropriate for students and scholars of ethics, policy, and political science, this book is also meant to be of use to practitioners and decision-makers faced with similar decisions.

Reviews

“Ethical Dilemmas of Migration, by Jean-Claude Garcia-Zamor, shines a light on the migration phenomenon in the US and the EU, with perspective in ethics and morality. … Professor Garcia-Zamora’s contribution to the literature occurs at a time when the interest might be sustained in aspects of immigration policy long enough to accomplish positive change. This book would facilitate that sort of analysis and conversation.” (Public Organization Review, September, 2018)
