About this product
- DescriptionAustralia and Canada have each sought international reputations as humanitarian do-gooders, especially in the area of refugee admissions. This book traces the connections between the nation-building tradition of immigration and the challenge of admitting people who do t reflect the national interest of the twenty-first century. In a detailed consideration of how refugees and others in need are admitted to Australia and Canada, Catherine Dauvergne links humanitarianism and national identity to explain the current shape of the law. Humanitarianism, Identity, and Nation is a welcome antidote to ecomic critiques of immigration, and a thoughtful contribution to rights talk.
- Author BiographyCatherine Dauvergne is Canada Research Chair in Migration Law and Associate Professor in the Faculty of Law at the University of British Columbia.
