Stephen Macedo is the Laurance S. Rockefeller Professor of Politics and the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University. He writes and teaches on political theory, ethics, public policy, and law, especially on topics related to liberalism, democracy and citizenship, diversity and civic education, religion and politics, and the family and sexuality. His books include Diversity and Distrust: Civic Education in a Multicultural Democracy (2000); the co-authored Democracy at Risk: How Political Choices Undermine Citizen Participation, and What We Can Do About It (2005); and Just Married: Same-Sex Couples, Monogamy, and the Future of Marriage (2015).  He is editor or co-editor of 15 books on topics ranging from the legacy of the 1960’s to universal jurisdiction in international law.  He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University.

The Migration and Human Values Lecture Series features five prominent researchers in the humanities and the social sciences reflecting on the ethical implications of migration. Each lecture is an opportunity for academics, policy thinkers, students and other interested citizens to reach beyond available data and partisan positions to contemplate the broader meaning of population flows.

Cosponsored by the PIIRS Research Community, “Migration: People and Cultures Across Borders” and the University Center for Human Values.
