Policing, Justice and Security in a Diverse Canada: Building an Empirical Evidence Base

This seminar is designed to bring together policymakers and researchers working in the areas of policing, justice, and security with those working in the areas of immigration and diversity.  The core objective of this interaction is to develop a research framework that will facilitate the development of an empirical evidence base on how these two areas of policy and research overlap.

In addition, the seminar should lay the groundwork for developing a network of researchers and policymakers with expertise in how these two areas interest.
