Expertise

  1. Immigration and Administrative Discretion.  This SSHRC-funded project involves, in part, an analysis of how overseas immigration officers understand and apply their discretionary authority when it comes to assessing applications for both permanent and temporary residence in Canada.  This is an ongoing project where I have been visiting Canada’s overseas visa offices to better understand how local contexts shape the way that visa officers decide on who gets into Canada. 
  2. The International Union of the Save the Children Fund. Founded in the aftermath of the First World War, the International Union of the Save the Children Fund, was a pioneer in the field of children's rights and international child welfare. In collaboration with Professor Linda Mahood (History, University of Guelph), we are interested in the ways in which the International Union framed issues of international child welfare. We are also examining the Union's fund raising strategies and techniques, and its relationships with other child welfare governmental and non-governmental organizations.
  3. Policing, Minorities and Immigration.  This refers to a cluster of projects that I have been doing with my colleague William Shaffir.  Over the past several years, we have been variously interested in policing and racial profiling, and how police services in small and medium sized cities in Ontario understand the challenges and opportunities associated with the presence of a more diverse array of immigrants in their respective communities.
