Migration and resilience in urban Canada-Immigration et résilience en milieu urbain
Hi Everyone,
As summer begins, partnership members are also very busy presenting their research at many different venues including CARFMS, the Canadian Association for Refugee and Force Migration Studies, ACFAS, Association francophone pour le savoir and the International Metropolis meetings in Ottawa between June 24 and 28, 2019. Check the conference website for information about our colleagues’ sessions. Also, please look below for information about the partnership’s exciting KM activities.
I am very happy to welcome Annick Germain, an urban sociologist at INRS-UCS who is well known for her ground-breaking research about social mix, urban planning and diversity and immigrant integration in contemporary cities, especially in Quebec. And now to the bittersweet news! I am thrilled to announce that Carla Angulo-Pasel will begin a tenure stream appointment as an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas, Rio Grande in the fall. Even in the short time that she has been involved in the partnership, her contributions have been critical. We owe much of the success of the April partnership meeting to Carla’s hard work. It is even harder to tell you that Adnan Turegun is resigning as Director of CERIS and leaving the partnership in August. It is impossible to overstate his contributions to BMRC-IRMU, an initiative that he began. Adnan will be greatly missed. On behalf of everyone, I want to thank him for his support and involvement. I know everyone joins me in wishing Carla and Adnan all the very best in their future endeavors.

York faculty, students contribute to new volume on international students in Canada
The authors investigate the connections between students and institutions. Like other migrant groups, student mobility is a form of social mobility, and one that requires access from a host state. But there are multiple institutions with which students interact and that influence the processes of social mobility. The collection features work by key scholars in the field that explores how international students and their families fare in local ethnic communities, educational and professional institutions, and the labour market. More information is available here.
