Presenter Roger Bolton introduces the panel of politicians and political theorists. They will discuss the function of political borders.
Kukathas talks about the notice of borders and border control. Border control is more about controlling what people do when they are inside a border than stopping them from crossing.
Cruddas talks about the importance of people having an identity tied to a sense of place. Countries and borders provide that sense, which relates to how people act politically.
The theory of globalization and a globalized world only applies to people who have the means to access it. There is not a sense of place but a focus on money and industry.
The panelists discuss the privileges some countries provide and if they have the right to defend that privilege. Kukathas states liberal democracy should not limit those inside its borders to a certain way of thinking.
Kukathas discusses using a selective immigration policy within a country and the potential dangers. Alibhai-Brown talks about the power of the state and its ability to monitor and control who is within its borders.
The panelists consider possible policies. Alibhai-Brown talks about the importance of treating refugees like any other immigrant.

The nation, the tribe, the union, are all sources of strength. But they are also a means to entrench advantage and exclude others. Are borders and boundaries really about privilege? Should we strengthen them so we have greater power and status, or remove them to create a fairer world? The Panel Independent columnist and author of Exotic England Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Labour politician Jon Cruddas and LSE political theorist Chandran Kukathas look beyond borders.
