Entitled, a podcast hosted by University of Chicago law professors Claudia Flores, director of Chicago Law's international human rights clinic, and Tom Ginsburg, Leo Spitz Professor of International Law, explores the stories and thorny questions around why rights matter and what’s the matter with rights.

In episode three of Entitled, Rights at the Border, Professor of Law, Political Science & Global Affairs Ayelet Shachar, R.F. Harney Chair in Ethnic, Immigration and Pluralism Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, is a featured guest. 

The right to seek and enjoy asylum has never been more important than in today’s global landscape. At the same time, countries have never been more committed to finding increasingly creative ways to avoid having to take in refugees.

Professor Shachar is the author of The Birthright Lottery: Citizenship and Global Inequality (Harvard U Press 2009).
