Abstract and Keywords
This chapter examines the ethical and normative questions associated with refugees and forced migration within the framework of political theory. It looks at the ethics of displacement and forced migration in relation to much broader political theories of immigration, citizenship, and nationality, focusing on who should be able to claim asylum and the responsibilities of states in protecting those they recognize as refugees. More specifically, it discusses how duties to refugees should be allocated between states, the limits of state responsibilities to refugees, under what circumstances forced migration may be considered justifiable, and under what conditions refugees should return.
