"Electoral Politics: Indochinese and Syrian Refugee Resettlement in Canada”
When?: Tuesday, September 29, 2015
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM in the Senior Common Room, 140 McLaughlin College @ York University
Presenter: Howard Edelman, Professor Emeritus in Philosophy at York University.
Description: To have refugees become and election issue is perhaps unique in the history of Canada. It could have become one in the federal election of February 1980 at the time of the Indochinese Refugee Movement. It did not. Why not then and why now? How and why did the issue of Syrian refugees become an election issue in 2015?
Everyone is welcome.
