Existing international law does a poor job of regulating international migration. The root of international law’s dysfunctional relationship with international mobility is this law’s steadfast protection of the almost unfettered right of a state to exclude non-citizens.
In this fascinating talk, Professor E. Tendayi Achiume proposes that re-conceiving the movement of certain migrants across international borders today as decolonization offers a new and productive logic, ethics, and lens for international law’s application to global migration.
