Martin Ruhs

Martin Ruhs is a University Lecturer in Political Economy at Kellogg College, University of Oxford and also member of the Center on Migration, Policy, and Society (COMPAS) at Oxford University. He is also a member of the Migration Advisory Committee to the United Kingdom government.

Ruhs is most famous for his detailed description of the empirically observed trade-off between the rights or privileges that migrants acquire in a country by virtue of their presence in its territory, and the degree of openness that a country has to migrants. He has described these arguments in many fora.

We intend to eventually publish a review of The Price of Rights. For the time being, you might want to check out this discussion on Open Borders Action Group.
