UBC law professor Catherine Dauvergne is one of four Canadian scholars to receive the $225,000 Trudeau fellowship. Dauvergne is one of Canada’s authorities on refugee and immigration law and is committed to transforming how Canada and other countries deal with refugees in a perspective of global justice.
Each year, the foundation names up to five Trudeau fellows, academics and public intellectuals who have set themselves apart through their research achievements, their creativity, and their commitment to social affairs. A Trudeau fellowship gives the university and the fellow access to the Trudeau community of scholars and seasoned policymakers as well as to Trudeau events.
