Race matters: Interrogating Race and Racism in the Immigration and Refugee Discourse

The recent global refugee crisis has triggered a tremendous act of generosity and voluntarism among Canadians, but it has also unleashed racist and xenophobic responses to refugees and immigrants. This workshop explores issues of xenophobia, Islamophobia, and anti-Black racism in immigration policy and practice. organizer Debbie Douglas, OCASI
