Mireille Paquet, PhD

Concordia University

I am a political scientist and I conduct research on immigration policy and politics in Canada, North America and Australia. I am interested in how political institutions and bureaucracies affect the content of immigration policy. My current projects focus on the new politics of immigration in Canada, the role of immigration departments in contemporary Quebec and Canada and new state responses to emerging immigration challenges.

I am the Concordia University Research Chair on the Politics of Immigration. With Concordia colleagues, I co-founded and co-direct the Centre for Immigration Policy Evaluation (CIPE)
