Everyone should be able to decide freely on which country they would like to live in; restrictions on immigration are acceptable only in exceptional cases. This is the argument that philosopher Andreas Cassee makes in this lucid book. He presents a sound overview of the discussion on the ethics of migration over the last 30 years and at the same time, he defends a position that focuses on the individual’s right to autonomously choose their place of residence. A work that is as topical as it is important.
