Abstract
In my talk I would like to address two questions: first, what are the legitimate limits that countries can set on the number of people they take in? And second, who are the people whom we are obligated to take in? Among the latter, I will talk about various categories from ethnic and ideological kinfolk to asylum seekers, and refugees. While I do not principally advocate a policy of open borders for reasons I will explain, right now, in my own country, the United States, I am an advocate for people trying to come in.

CV
Professor Emeritus of Social Science, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, NJ. As a professor, author, editor, and lecturer, Michael Walzer has addressed a wide variety of topics in political theory and moral philosophy: political obligation, just and unjust war, nationalism and ethnicity, economic justice and the welfare state. His books (among them Just and Unjust Wars, Spheres of Justice, The Company of Critics, Thick and Thin: Moral Argument at Home and Abroad, On Toleration, and Politics and Passion) and essays have played a part in the revival of practical, issue-focused ethics and in the development of a pluralist approach to political and moral life. For more than three decades Walzer served as co-editor of Dissent, now in its 64th year. His articles and interviews appear frequently in the world’s foremost newspapers and journals. He is currently working on the fourth volume of The Jewish Political Tradition, a comprehensive collaborative
project focused on the history of Jewish political thought. His book The Paradox of Liberation: Secular Revolutions and Religious Counterrevolutions, was  published in March of 2015, and A Foreign Policy for the Left was published in 2018.
