Human Smuggling Before the Supreme Court of Canada-Professor Catherine Dauvergne (UBC)

by | Feb 23, 2015

This talk will explain the constitutional challenge to Canada’s human smuggling laws that was argued before the Supreme Court of Canada in February 2015.  The case asks whether Canada’s criminalization of human smuggling is unconstitutional because it can penalize individuals and groups who assist refugees in seeking international protection in Canada.  Catherine Dauvergne provided expert evidence at the trial level in this case, and has watched it closely as a member of the Canada Council for Refugees Legal Affairs Committee.

This event is being co-hosted with Border Criminologies and the Refugee Studies Centre.  All welcome, no booking required.
