“I agree with the French court decision today, but the burkini issue is really a symptom of a much deeper issue in France and Europe generally.”
Professor Weinfeld holds the Chair in Canadian Ethnic Studies, and directs the minor program in Canadian Ethnic Studies. He’s currently interested in areas of ethnicity and public policy, notably the role of minority-origin professionals in various policy domains.
