Policy and a Pint – What is the Appropriate Response to Refugees and Asylum Claimants?

Alternate Text or Title of article

Please join the School of Public Policy and our expert panel as we discuss appropriate responses to the influx of refugees and asylum seekers into Canada. This is a casual event, for those that like to lift an elbow, while you learn.

Panel Speakers:

  • Fariborz Birjandian, CEO, Calgary Catholic Immigration Society
  • Robert Falconer, Policy Researcher, The School of Public Policy
  • Dr. Ron Kneebone, Scientific Director, Social Policy and Health, The School of Public Policy
