ABSTRACT
The article explores the communitarian aspects of Emmanuel Levinas' thought which might inform a debate about the contribution of his ethic to the discussion of immigration, detention and border security. Levinas' notion of proximity suggests that interpersonal relations is founded upon an ethical proximity and the responsibility which follow from this. A Levinasian ethic claims that what is critical in human encounter is the potential for unsettling or moving away from the centre of being.
