Dr. Catherine Dauvergne

Dean, Professor

Allard School of Law

I have been working in the area of refugee, immigration, and citizenship law over the past quarter of a century.I have 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. I am also an editor or co-author of four other volumes, including Canada’s immigration and refugee law casebook.Much of my work engages feminist critique of the law, and the place of women in immigration, refugee, and citizenship laws. I’m currently a research collaborator with colleagues Ben Goold and Efrat Arbel on the SSHRC funded project Finding a Place for Rights: An Independent Evaluation of the Impact of the Beyond the Border Initiative on Human Rights at the Canada-US Border.
