ACU Philosophy Department Seminar Series, presents:

Children, Asylum and the Good Life
Luara Ferracioli (The University of Sydney/University of Amsterdam)
In this paper, I argue that carefreeness is an essential good of a childhood well lived, and that this has important implications for our refugee policies. Specifically, I argue that refugee children not only have a right to permanent settlement in a safe state as a result of their interest in enjoying ongoing occupancy somewhere in the world, but also as a result of their interest in leading good lives qua children. The practical implications of my argument should be clear: in a world where not all refugees will be settled in a safe state, and hard choices have to made, this gives states a compelling reason to prioritize the permanent settlement of refugee children.

DAY and TIME: Friday October 12, 2.30pm - 4 pm
