Professor Dawn Chatty appeared on CBC Radio's The Sunday Edition on May 3rd to discuss the global displacement crisis and the response of Western countries. She argued for expanded search-and-rescue operations in the Mediterranean, as well as 'creative solutions' such as the ability to apply for asylum at European embassies in North Africa.
The panel also included Jennifer Hyndman, Director of the Centre for Refugee Studies at York University in Canada, and Bob Rae, a former premier of Ontario and a former Member of Parliament who now works in aboriginal and human rights law.
They discussed the language adopted by governments and the press around refugee and asylum issues, as well as historical precedent for dealing with the current crisis and what receiving countries can do to address the situation.
