Migration, Exclusion, and Anti-Racist Practice
The book dissects issues facing refugees, immigrants, and other racialized minorities, both in Canada and globally, through a critical, anti-racist lens. It also investigates racist crimes, and public reaction to them, against the long-established African- Nova Scotian community. It moves beyond traditional theories by advancing an anti-racist framework toward migration and refugee studies using African refugees’ lived, and living, experiences in Canada. Based on theoretical, empirical, and qualitative accounts of resettlement challenges individuals have experienced, the book analyzes socio-racial constructs used in the post-colonial North to exclude, contain, and forcibly repatriate refugees.
