Join the editors, plus special guests, for a panel discussion of “Borders and Migration: The Canadian Experience in Comparative Perspective” published by University of Ottawa Press (2023). The editors of the book, Michael Carpenter (9:52), Melissa Kelly (22:00), and Oliver Schmidtke (27:18), summarize their main findings and arguments, bridging divides between border studies and migration studies. Two chapter contributors join the panel to present their findings: Scott Watson (33:52) discusses the global migration regime, and Asad Kiyani (41:43) discusses the so-called Safe Third Country Agreement between Canada and the United States. The panel is moderated by Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly, author of the book’s concluding chapter, and a Q & A (49:25) follows.
