Current Research

My research focuses on migration law and policy in context. More specifically, much of my current scholarship engages with the controversies, complexities and challenges posed by immigration and border security measures as well as the impact of these measures on asylum seekers, refugees and the communities they have established in Canada. A parallel research interest concerns the theory and practice of citizenship in ethnically divided societies.
