The Criminalization of Migration and Book Launch @ 140 McLaughlin College, Senior Common Room | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

With an estimated 260 million migrants in the world today, including over 68.5 million of those who are forcibly displaced, States have turned to draconian measures to try to stem the flow of irregular migration, including, the criminalization of migration itself. "Crimmigration" or the "criminalization of migration" involves the use of criminal law measures, public policies, and practices that stigmatize, marginalize and diminish or undermine the rights of those who are forcibly displaced. Canada has not been immune from these practices, despite its reputation of being one of the most open immigrant and refugee receiving States in the world.
