QUESCREN Lunch & Learn: A Gesture of Hospitality for Asylum Seekers

November 18, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Quebec English-speaking Communities Research Network is hosting a virtual Lunch & Learn: A Gesture of Hospitality for Asylum Seekers.

This presentation by professor Chedly Belkhodja and graduate student Cassandre Gratton focuses on research on the mobilization of a collective created by citizens, Bridges not Borders (B&B), which has been working to defend the asylum seekers who cross the Canada-U.S. border “irregularly” since 2017. The case of B&B contributes to the literature on borders by bringing a perspective interested in the dynamics and mobilizations of citizens coming to the help of vulnerable persons across border crossings. Based on content analyses and semi-structured interviews, this case study allows us to present a “bottom up” form of action, led by citizens mobilized by migration issues, which we define under the theme of hospitality.

When: Thursday, November 18, 12 p.m. – 1 p.m.
