Reflecting on refugee resettlement after "Operation Syrian Refugees": Outcomes and challenges

Lunch provided.


Beginning in November 2015, thousands of Syrian refugees were resettled to Canada through "Operation Syrian Refugees." How have these refugees fared as they have settled in to life in Canada? What are the current challenges facing organizations that support refugee resettlement? What are the implications of these experiences for efforts to promote broader international adoption of Canada's refugee resettlement sponsorship system?

Chair:
François Crépeau (Oppenheimer Chair in Public International Law, McGill University)

Speakers:
Jill Hanley (Associate Professor, McGill School of Social Work and Scientific Director, Sherpa Research Institute on Migration, Health and Social Services)
Sabine Lehr (Private Sponsorship of Refugees Manager, Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria and Associate Faculty Member, Royal Roads University)
Geoff Cameron (Research Associate, Global Migration Lab, Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, University of Toronto)

This event is hosted by the McGill Refugee Research Group and sponsored by the FRQSC team grant on "Refugee protection and struggles for justice: From global to local contexts.”
