There are a large number of issues debated in the global justiceliterature concerning migration, whether temporary, permanent, legal orillegal. These include: Should states have the right to controltheir borders? Even if they have such a right, should states bemore generous in admitting would-be migrants, especially consideringthe facts about global disparities in life prospects? Whenaffluent developed states refuse to open their borders to theeconomically disadvantaged, is this equivalent to members of thearistocracy unjustly protecting their privilege as was the case infeudal times? What responsibilities are there to admit morerefugees? Can illegal immigration be justified under certaincircumstances? What sorts of criteria may affluent developedcountries use when selecting migrants from the pool of applicants forcitizenship? May they legitimately consider how prospectivemigrants would fit in with current citizens, favoring certainreligious, linguistic, or ethnic affiliations to managecompatibility? When making migrant selection decisions, shouldthey consider the effects on those who remain in countries of originand if so, is this fair to the would-be migrants who would be excludedon grounds of the alleged negative impacts for home countrycitizens? If states admit migrant workers, are there moralconstraints on how they should be treated? Would admittingtemporary workers without simultaneously allowing them a pathway tocitizenship be unjust? What responsibilities do we have inrelation to human trafficking?

Increased interest concerning issues of global justice has alsocoincided with enhanced interest in the place and value ofnationalism. These explorations also track contemporary events such asnationalist clashes which have spilled over into widespread suffering(notably in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda), increased calls fornational self-determination to carry considerable weight, such as instate recognition for Palestinians or Tibetans, and also in the caseof secession (prominently, Quebec). In this area global justicetheorists have been concerned with a range of important questions suchas: Under what conditions should claims to national self-determinationbe granted substantial weight? When should self-determination yield toconcern for protecting human rights? Are commitments to nationalismand global justice compatible? Is genuine democracy only possible atthe state level or are there robust forms of democracy that arepossible in more international fora? How are ideals of democracy bestincorporated into defensible global institutional arrangements? Isworld justice possible without a world state?

Theories of global justice aim to help us understand our worldbetter and what our responsibilities are in it. While sometheorists aim purely at theoretical understanding, others hope also toprovide an analysis that can be useful in practical policy makingconcerning global justice matters.
