|Title:||Clarifying our duties to resist||Authors:||Lim, Chong-Ming||Keywords:||Humanities::Philosophy||Issue Date:||2022||Source:||Lim, C. (2022). Clarifying our duties to resist.

The moral and political principles that ground the duty to obey the law in just or nearly just conditions, also ground the duty to resist in unjust conditions. This argument is often applied to a variety of unjust conditions. In this essay, I critically examine this argument, focusing on conditions involving institutionally entrenched and socially normalised injustice. In such conditions, the issue of citizens’ duties to resist is complicated. I conclude by considering how my discussions may clarify a contemporary problem about engaging in resistance to aid potential migrants who have been turned away by states in accordance with widely accepted rules.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/163891||ISSN:||0020-174X||DOI:||10.1080/0020174X.2022.2053739||Rights:||© 2022 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
