The 2013 RCIS conference “Immigration and Settlement: Precarious Futures?” is dedicated to advancing innovative and interdisciplinary research from diverse critical and institutional perspectives in the areas of immigration and settlement, international migration, integration, and diaspora and refugee studies. It aims to integrate theory with practice on international migration issues based on values of inclusion and respect for cultural diversity.
The conference will connect international and national research networks with Ontario and especially Toronto, one of the world’s most diverse communities. Furthermore, it will bring together immigration and settlement scholars, graduate students, national, provincial and municipal policy makers, regional non-government agencies and community representatives.
