Risse’s book On Global Justice (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2012) makes the idea of humanity’s collective ownership of the earth central and among other topics applies it to immigration. However, this perspective continues to be largely absent from debates about immigration. This paper argues that humanity’s collective ownership of the earth should be given more prominence in immigration debates and addresses some important objections
that have been raised to that approach.
