This research group with around 70 experts is part of the Europe Dialogue on Migration: Cross-Border Mobility and the European Union Refugee Crisis Jean Monnet project, supported by the EU's Erasmus+ programme and the Centre for Global Studies (2016-2018). It brings together a multi-disciplinary expert group in the field of the governance of borders and migration and promotes exchange between Canada and the EU in scholarly and broader public debates. A series of knowledge dissemination initiatives targets public policy stakeholders and civil society organizations with the aim to expand the knowledge of European integration through the lens of migration and border studies in Canada.
This group tackles on some fundamental social and political challenges that are shared between Canada and the EU in light that current refugee crisis. In terms of advancing transatlantic dialogue and promoting EU Studies in Canada, the focus on borders and migration is timely and most promising with a view to its broad scholarly and societal resonance. The CEDoM project forms a multi-disciplinary research cluster on the governance of borders and migration and to instigate exchange between Canada and the EU in scholarly and broader public debates.
