An interview with Yale Philosophy professor Seyla Benhabib

In this exclusive Resetdoc interview, Seyla Benhabib, philosopher and professor of Political Science and Philosophy at Yale, says «When you come to the land of ‘Another’ and your intentions are peaceful, you have a moral and legal claim to be able to stay there.

There must be an open, transparent, consistent way for the stranger to become a member of a state.»
