David Moffette (Assistant Professor) and Jennifer Ridgley (Geography, Carleton) published an article in the inaugural issue of Migration and Society. The essay, titled “Sanctuary City Organizing in Canada: From Hospitality to Solidarity”, looks at recent campaigns aimed at building, legislating, and enforcing municipal commitments to alleviating and resisting the harms done by federal immigration enforcement” in Canada. “The authors—who are themselves involved in sanctuary city organizing—reflect on the concept [of sanctuary], and offer a critical assessment of these organizing efforts. [They] provide a brief history of these campaigns in Canada, discuss the impact of these policies in cities where they have been adopted, reflect on the types of politics that inform notions of sanctuary, hospitality, solidarity, and resistance, and offer some lessons for moving forward.”
