The law and economics of national borders: towards an anti-capitalist immigration practice

Sunday 26th September1pm2pm

How as lawyers, do we take our immigration practice into the realm of politics to challenge the materiality and brutality of the border? How do we join this with an economic analysis of the function of borders as mechanisms of super-exploitation, particularly of workers in the Global South? How do we create an internationalist legal practice that contributes towards dismantling borders?
