Nations and borders

Sarah Song interviewed on KALW, Philosophy Talk, June 23, 2013 (registration required)

“Immigration gets at the core of who we are as a nation…. National boundaries are morally significant, even if arbitrary, because they demarcate a political community that provides all sorts of rights and liberties—and maybe more ambitiously, the opportunity for collective self-government.” (This program was recorded live at the Marsh Theater in San Francisco.)

Sarah Song Evaluates U.K. Archbishop’s Proposal to Accommodate Islamic Law

The Recorder, March 7, by Sarah Song

“The archbishop and his supporters are gambling that accommodating Islamic courts is not only the right thing to do, but also the best way to foster the integration of Muslim minorities in the West. They may well be right. But they need to offer concrete proposals for addressing this dilemma. So long as the dominant interpretations of Shariah law deny the equality of women, formally recognizing it may come at women’s expense.”
