Racialized Reception Contexts


Project Summary:

Racialized Reception Contexts (RRC) aims to develop a program of research orientated within the field of Critical Immigration and Refugee Studies. Initial research focuses on configurations of racialization in relation to the meaning of East/West, South/North, and the articulations of racism and nationalism in the reception of refugees in Europe, North America and the Middle East. RRC is guided by the understanding that racialization, particularly in light of the post-9/11 “war on terror,” works with the historical conditions of racism specific to a given national formation, but in a dynamic global context. A six-country analysis of Canada, the United States, Italy, Greece, Norway and Jordan, will examine the extent to which policy instruments and media discourse related to the global refugee crisis negatively impacts racialized communities in each reception context.
