Stephen Macedo After the Backlash: Populism and the Politics and Ethics of Migration 14 Law & Ethics of Human Rights 153 (November, 2020) Abstract: In the U.S., and elsewhere, populism has been democracy's way of shaking elites up.

Yet elites have often paid too little heed to the domestic distributive impact of high immigration and globalized trade. Immigration and globalization are also... 2020

Richard Delgado , Jean Stefancic Borders by Consent: a Proposal for Reducing Two Kinds of Violence in Immigration Practice 52 Arizona State Law Journal 337 (Summer, 2020) We describe a new consensual theory of borders and immigration that reverses Peter Schuck's and Rogers Smith's notion of citizenship by consent and posits that borders are legitimate--and make sense--only if they are products of consent on the part of both countries on opposite sides of them. Our approach, in turn, leads to differential borders... 2020
