“The case for open borders is based on ethics and economics. Ethically, it’s simply wrong to prevent people from moving to another place where they can live a happier, more productive life. And economically, closed borders and restrictions of movement limit economic activity and keep people poor.” – Fabio Rojas, professor of sociology at Indiana University.
On May 13th professor Rojas visits the Ratio institute for an open, digital lecture on the topic, and you are welcome to join!
The lecture will be commented by Karl Wennberg, professor of business administration at Linköping University and researcher at the Ratio institute, and moderated by Charlotta Stern, professor of sociology at Stockholm University and deputy CEO at the Ratio institute.
Date: Wednesday May 13th
Time: 15.00-15.45, Stockholm time (CEST, GMT +02:00)
