Several humanitarian crises involving humanmigration across national boundaries stemming from war, economic devastations,gang violence, and violence in ethnic or religious conflicts have unfolded. Political debates concerning immigration and immigrant communities arecontinuing in many countries, especially during election years. While therehave always been migrating human beings, they raise distinctive issues in themodern era because of the political context under which the migrations takeplace, namely, that of a system of sovereign nation states with rights tocontrol their borders and determine their memberships. This collection providesreaders the opportunity to parse these complex issues with the help of diversephilosophical, moral, and political perspectives.
