Guest Speaker:  Shauna Labman , Lawyer and Associate Professor of  Human Rights at the Global College, University of Winnipeg

In her book, Crossing Law’s Border: Canada’s Refugee Resettlement Program (UBC Press, 2019), Shauna Labman explores how rights, responsibilities, and obligations intersect in the absence of a legal scheme for refugee resettlement. She asks: How does law influence the voluntary act of resettlement, and how does resettlement affect asylum policy? Her book shows that the core concept of refugee protection, non-refoulement, can be compromised by resettlement, both by the resettlement selection process and the influence of resettlement practices on in-country asylum.

Dr. Shauna Labman writes and speaks extensively on refugee law, resettlement and private refugee sponsorship. She is a lawyer and Associate Professor of Human Rights at the Global College, University of Winnipeg.
