Biftu Yousuf’s dissertation explores the invisibilized role of racialized diasporas in Canada’s refugee protection and resettlement project. She uses the Private Sponsorship of Refugees program as a case study to examine migration governance and refugee policies in Canada, but from the perspectives and experiences of racialized sponsors with refugee histories.
