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. In 2009 I organized an international conference with three colleagues from Osgoode Hall Law School: "Israel/ Palestine: Mapping Models of Statehood and Paths to Peace". The program, paper abstracts and a full audio archive of the proceedings is available on the conference website:
