On March 29, McGill’s Faculty of Law welcomed Historian and Professor from the University of Zayed, Sonia Cancian. Cancian spoke of how the life stories of migrants in Italy and Canada, much like those of refugees today, may emphatically shape and be shaped by migrant law. Cancian suggests that empathy is the language of the 21st century. It is a vehicle that can be used for social and political awareness and for the undoing and creation of policy for refugees across the globe today.
