For long, international students were not included in most migration debates because they were seen as temporary sojourners. Did things change?
Anna Triandafyllidou the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Migration and Integration at Ryerson University is the curator/organizer. This blog aims to examine the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic raises for vulnerable residents and workers at and within national borders.
More than 30 international scholars from 11 countries were invited to provide commentary on the issues that are keeping them awake at night. Writers share their perspective on how decisions that are made at the highest level have a rippling effect throughout our world. But they also provide a spotlight on signs of resilience and solidarity within national borders as well as across boundaries of ethnicity, gender, age and class.
We have also begun webinars on this topic as well.
