East European Refugee Symposium

Unknown Author


On March 29, 1990, the Centre for Refugee Studies organized a symposium at Osgoode
Hall Law School, York University, to discuss the Canadian policy towards Eastern
Europeans seeking to come to Canada as refugees under the current rapidly-changing
circumstances. Participants were invited to express their own opinions based on their
knowledge and not to represent any organizational views. Further, it was agreed that
there would be no attribution of comments. Nor would the meeting be reported, though
the results could be. In any case, there was no commitment by anyone to endorse the
results. The intention was to encourage a free exchange of information and ideas
without inhibition.
