Conversation and discussion: Tuesday 27 November: 7.30 pm: Front Page, Donegall Street, Belfast

Following our successful Eat, Drink and Argue event, we are launching the Belfast Salon, a regular get together of individuals who want to broaden the public space for argument and debate.

Join us for our next event on the subject of Open Borders
Venue: The Front Page Bar (side room), Donegall Street, Belfast
Date: Tuesday 27 November; 7'30 pm

In his book "Immigrants Your Country Needs Them", Philippe Legrain argues for Open Borders on the basis that freedom to travel is an inalienable right, and, in any event, immigrants enrich diversity in the host country and foster economic growth.

The proposition may carry moral weight but it goes against the grain of all Western immigration policies. On the other hand if open borders are wishful thinking what's the
alternative?

Join us for the discussion at the Front Page Bar, 106-110 Donegall Street, Belfast, BT1
