Talk summary: “Open Borders: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Levels” – Is it acceptable to prevent someone from moving or travelling to a new country? This talk will review anti-immigration arguments from the most basic to the most sophisticated and show that these arguments rarely hold up to scrutiny. Thus, migration should be liberalized.
