Speaker:  Dennis Mueller (University of Vienna, Austria)
Topic:  Rights, Religion, Riviera, and Roma

Abstract

The recent conflict between the French government and the EU over Roma motivates a more general examination of the EU's free mobility policies.  The article describes three additional situations   access to land in desirable locations, access to universities, and access to health care  where the EU's policies with respect to mobility can lead to Pareto sub-optimal outcomes.  More generally, the article challenges the now widely held presumption, which underlies debates like these over rights, that there exists some set of universal human rights of which free movement is a member.  A utilitarian theory of constitutional rights is offered instead.


Address: Room 5215. Korpus 5, 26 Shabolovka Ulitsa.
