FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT

Freedom of movement within the territory of a Nation State is a fundamental right in a democracy; without such a freedom, we cannot be said to be truly free to make independent choices. Restrictions on individuals’ movement across international boundaries are more generally accepted, partly due to historical circumstance, partly due to the need for controls to deal with advances in global travel. This chapter deals with the ability of people to move within and across State frontiers.
