Public Issues Forum

The Centre for Ethics presents a Public Issues Forum

Identity and the State: Immigration, Race, and Belonging after the US Election

The recent US election has destabilized many expectations of the democratic liberal state. Most concerning for some is the insistence of the President-elect on legitimizing race-based and anti-immigrant policies as a defining feature of the new administration. This forum, jointly sponsored by the Centre for Ethics and the Department of Social Justice Education, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto, invites an interdisciplinary panel to consider issues of immigration, race and belonging as we anticipate the inauguration of Donald Trump.

Panelists

Joseph Carens, Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Toronto
Rinaldo Walcott, Director, Women’s and Gender Studies Institute and Associate Professor, Department of Social Justice Education, University of Toronto
Mohammad Fadel, Associate Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Toronto
