Responsibility for refugee protection as structural-historical redress for colonial legacies

On February 20th, 1-2pm, visiting PhD researcher Tamara van den Berg will be giving a work in progress talk.

In this paper, we conceptualize colonialism as a structural-historical injustice. From this, we develop an ameliorative understanding of refugees, as a particular group that is similarly unjustly constrained by colonial structures, and whose members are therefore owed protection as a form of redress for colonial harm.

We will meet in B09 of the Philosophy Department (45 Victoria Street).

Everyone welcome!
