This 5-year project explores the practical and human rights implications associated with the securitization of irregular migration and asylum in Canada. It examines Canada’s recent asylum and border control policies, addresses questions concerning the effectiveness of these policies and their impact on the human rights of irregular migrants and asylum seekers. The project aims to provide an in-depth critical analysis of the implementation in Canada of recent measures, produce knowledge concerning their effectiveness relative to stated legislative objective, inform and guide the action of legal institutions, practitioners, community organizations, and human rights advocates.
