Sample text

The RD moves to control the borders of the polity with a view to realising distributive justice within the community. It draws a sharp distinction between those inside and those outside, such that those within are viewed as the preferred recipients of rights and resources generated by the community. Justice, on this view, is a virtue of a local political community. By contrast, PD views immigration as the outcome of ‘global injustice’: Nobody migrates on a whim, thousands of human beings are forced to abandon their lands, leave their families, among other things because their towns are being pushed down by multinationals ...
