Beyond Borders:  The Human Rights of Non-Citizens at Home and Abroad. Edited by Molly Katrina Land, University of Connecticut School of Law, Kathryn Rae Libal, University of Connecticut School of Social Work, Jillian Robin Chambers, University of Connecticut

The publisher's description of the volume:

"States have long denied basic rights to non-citizens within their borders, and international law imposes only limited duties on states with respect to those fleeing persecution. But even the limited rights previously enjoyed by non-citizens are eroding in the face of rising nationalism, populism, xenophobia, and racism. Beyond Borders explores what obligations we owe to those outside our political community. Drawing on contributions from a broad variety of disciplines – from literature to political science to philosophy – the volume considers the failures of law and politics to guarantee rights for the most vulnerable and attempts to imagine new forms of belonging grounded in ideas of solidarity, empathy, and responsibility in order to identify a more robust basis for the protection of non-citizens at home and abroad. This title is also available as Open Access on Cambridge Core."
