Education

PhD (Université de Montreal)

I am a political scientist and I conduct research on immigration policy and politics in Canada, North America and Australia. I am interested in how political institutions and bureaucracies affect the content of immigration policy and the role of these institutions in immigration politics. My current projects focus on the new politics of immigration in Canada, sanctuary cities, the role of immigration departments in contemporary immigration debates and new state responses to emerging immigration challenges.

I am the Concordia University Research Chair on the Politics of Immigration .With Concordia colleagues, I co-founded and co-direct the Centre for the Study of Politics and Immigration (CSPI) and the Équipe de recherche sur l'immigration dans le Québec Actuel (ÉRIQA)

I am interested in supervising graduate students and honors thesis in the following areas: immigration policies and politics, theories of immigration and integration, policy development and implementation.

Je parle français et suis heureuse de superviser des étudiantes et étudiants souhaitant travailler dans cette langue.

Research interests

Immigration politics, immigration policies, public policy and public administration, federalism, Canadian and Quebec politics.
