Reframing Displacement and Membership: Ethics of Migration

The mounting human costs of contemporary displacement challenge dominant interpretations that frame migration in terms of security or economic functionalism alone. Surveying global realities and recent academic and pastoral contributions, the author argues that a migration ethic attentive to transnational human rights, scriptural hospitality, and mutually (re)constituted membership remains well poised to reorient reigning approaches. The analysis suggests that greater attentiveness to the Church’s posture toward new migrants and the genderspecific experiences of migration are warranted.
