    I agree with your point, Mustvara. Even when we read the UDHR, the ICCPR, and the ICESCR, it is notable how state sovereignty overrides human rights. For instance, article 11 of ICCPR states that “The above-mentioned rights shall not be subject to any restrictions except those which are provided by law, are necessary to protect national security, public order, public health or morals…” From this perspective, the States can restrict people’s rights under their understanding of national security. These kinds of statements create the legal limbo for refugees and asylum seekers that you mention. Overall, human rights declaration and conventions do not respond to the problem of migration adequately.

    Hi all! My name is Miguel Cerón Becerra. I am starting my Ph.D. in philosophy with a focus on immigration at Loyola University Chicago. I am glad to be here!
