How does the Canadian state respond to refugees?
Since November 2015, Canada has welcomed over 40,000 Syrian refugees.
The Canadian approach when it comes to immigration and refugee policy is generating a lot of international attention from researchers, governments and advocates.
This graduate summer school, a collaboration between the School of Community and Public Affairs and the Department of Political Science, responded to a growing appetite for a better understanding of the Canadian Syrian refugee initiative.
Participants learned about the policies, state institutions and private initiatives that characterize Canada’s approach to refugee resettlement and, also acquired knowledge about the political dynamics supporting refugee resettlement.
While the course is now over, you can still peruse blogs, photos and other materials:
