Crossing Borders, Breaking Borders

The Marketplace of Ideas

Release Date: 11/23/2020

On September 17, the LEC held a co-sponsored webinar with Indiana University Bloomington’s Maurer School of Law on two new books that critically examine new ideas about migration, secession, and political freedom.

Professor of Law at George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School, Ilya Somin, argues for the expansion of people’s ability to “vote with their feet” across domestic and international boundaries in his book Free to Move. Timothy Waters, Professor of Law and Val Nolan Faculty Fellow at Indiana University Maurer School of Law and Associate Director of the Center for Constitutional Democracy, argues for a radical rethink of the opposition to secession asking in his book Boxing Pandora if secession is dangerous, or a pathway to stability?

Tune in to this episode of The Marketplace of Ideas to hear both authors present their arguments, and Professor Sanford Levinson, W. St. John Garwood, Jr. Centennial Chair and Professor of Government at The University of Texas at Austin School of Law, comment on both books.
