Joseph H. Carens, Ph.D., is Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto. He is the author of Culture, Citizenship, and Community, which won the 2002 C. B. Macpherson Award, and  Equality, Moral Incentives and the Market.

In his latest book,The Ethics of Immigration, Carens illuminates one of the most pressing issues of our time. Immigration poses practical problems for western democracies and also challenges the ways in which people in democracies think about citizenship and belonging, about rights and responsibilities, and about freedom and equality.

The State of Democracy Lectures Series is dedicated to providing a forum for meaningful dialogue over public issues that cut across the disciplinary boundaries of the social sciences. The series is a centerpiece of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. It enables the intellectual exploration of current events and issues while fostering discussion and debate, which is the heart of meaningful democratic citizenship.  For more information visit  The Campbell Public Affairs InstituteThis year’s lecture is made possible by the Norman M. and Marsha Lee Berkman Fund.
