Producing and Negotiating Precarious Migratory Status in Canada

The Research Alliance on Precarious Status presents a public workshop: “Producing and Negotiating Precarious Migratory Status in Canada”

International Conference Center, 5th Floor, York Research Tower

Thursday, September 16, 2010, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 pm

The goal of this Workshop is to discuss the production, negotiation and implications of precarious status in the Canadian context, to contribute to and inform Canadian and international debates on immigration, citizenship, social inclusion, and rights.  The workshop will use the following format: invited discussants will provide comments on the papers, authors will respond briefly, and then the floor will open for discussion.  The papers are written by authors in a number of disciplines, and include empirical case studies from several arenas (e.g. education, health, work, etc.), policy analyses, and conceptual discussions.  The authors analyze the production of precarious status in Canada from various legal locations, including temporary workers, failed refugee claimants, and non-status; address the everyday experiences of living with various forms of precarious status; and examine institutional negotiations of access to services and resources by and for precarious status migrants, as well as social movement and other organizing around these issues.

This seminar is free and open to the public.  Please RSVP to with your name and institutional affiliation by Sept. 13
