Kieran Oberman is a post-doctoral fellow in the Program on Global Justice and the Center for Ethics in Society at Stanford Univeristy.  He completed his PhD at Oxford University in 2009.  His thesis,  "Immigration and Freedom of Movement," argued that people have a human right to freedom of movement that entails a right to cross  international borders. Before coming to Stanford he held a short post-doctorate position at the University of Louvain in Belgium.  While at Stanford he has continued his work on the ethical issues surrounding international migration.  His article, "Immigration, Global Poverty and the Right to Stay", which argues against using migration as a means to address global poverty, is forthcoming in Political Studies.
