About Catherine Dauvergne

Catherine Dauvergne is the eighth Dean of the Peter A. Allard School of Law. Professor Dauvergne has been working in the area of refugee, immigration, and citizenship law over the past quarter of a century.  For a decade she held the Canada Research in Migration Law.  In 2012, Dauvergne was named a Fellow of the Trudeau Foundation in recognition of her contributions to public discourse in Canada. She has written three books that take a broad perspective on the theoretical underpinnings of these areas of law, including considering how human rights principles and discourses fit into a migration and citizenship framework. Dauvergne is also an editor or co-author of four other volumes, including Canada’s immigration and refugee law casebook.  Much of Dauvergne’s work engages feminist critique of the law, and the place of women in immigration, refugee, and citizenship laws. Dauvergne is currently a research collaborator with colleagues Ben Goold and Efrat Arbel on the SSHRC funded project Finding a Place for Rights: An Independent Evaluation of the Impact of the Beyond the Border Initiative on Human Rights at the Canada-US Border.
