Vulnerability and Mobility. Does the Paradigm of «Human Security» Provide an Answer to the Ethical Dilemmas Raised by International Migration?

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Mobility, Migration, Vulnerability, Capability, Human Security.

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.
