In 2022-23, we completed (1) A comparative qualitative-based project examining immigrants from France in Montréal and Toronto (see our brochure); and (2) Discourse analysis of opinion pieces, parliamentary debates and parliamentary submissions related to Law 21 in Québec, and two controversies in Lebanon and Switzerland.

On May 18-19, 2023, we will launch a five-year team project with a workshop funded by the CRIDAQ
