This paper aims to apply the paradigm of human security to issues of migratory
justice. A current way of phrasing dilemmas raised by international migration
is to see them as a conflict of duties towards different kinds of vulnerable
populations: foreigners and fellow citizens. This paper aims to show that this
intuitive distinction is misleading if we want to imagine a justice in migratory and
mobility issues. This paper will thus test the validity of another way of framing
the question, which rests on a double conceptual shift: (a) from the discourse of
rights to the discourse of human security, linked to the concepts of vulnerability
on the one hand, capabilities on the other; (b) from the discourse of migration to
the discourse of mobility.
