Mireille Paquet

Co-founder and co-director of the Centre for Immigration Policy Evaluation (CIPE)

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.

With Concordia colleagues, I co-founded and co-direct the Centre for Immigration Policy Evaluation (CIPE). In 2017-2018, I am the William Lyon Mackenzie King Postdoctoral Fellow of the Canada Program at Harvard University's Weatherhead Center for International Affairs. In 2016-2017, I was the recipient of the Concordia University Research Awards ("Person and Society").
