Identifying and Analyzing Gaps in Protection for Asylum Seekers from the Middle East: Recent Research and Findings

The ongoing humanitarian crises in the Middle East are provoking large-scale refugee movements. Across neighbouring states and during transit, existing legal and policy frameworks are proving incapable of securing safety and protection for these refugees. While reforms are urgently needed, any structural or local-level proposals should take into account the voices of refugees as well as firsthand reports from the field. This University of Toronto panel aims to contribute productively to the conversation on durable solutions.

Panel presenters:
Craig D. Smith, PhD candidate, Department of Political Science, University of Toronto
Gulay Kilicaslan, PhD candidate, Department of Sociology, York University
Nicholas A. R. Fraser, PhD candidate, Department of Political Science, University of Toronto
Raluca Bejan, PhD candidate, Faculty of SociaI Work, University of Toronto

Convenors:
Alizee Bodson (Diaspora Studies)
Stephanie J. Silverman (Centre for Ethics)

This event is free and open to all. No registration is required. For further information, please contact the Centre for Ethics at (416) 978-6288
