Catherine Dauvergne has been working in the area of refugee, immigration, and citizenship law for twenty years. She has written three books that take a broad perspective on the theoretical underpinnings of these areas of law, including considering how human rights principles and discourses fit into a migration and citizenship framework. Catherine has recently held a major research grant examining the failure of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms to protect non-citizens. She is currently working on an Australian Research Council grant analyzing gendered aspects of refugee determination.

Asha Kaushal is a visiting postdoctoral fellow at the Liu Institute for Global Issues and a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law. Her research interests include immigration and refugee law, law and diversity, and legal theory. Her work has appeared in several journals, including the International Journal of Refugee Law.
