This change is vital ly important at a time when the global pace of migration is higher than e ver, and migration aspirations even higher.  It is now evident that the idea of a settler society, previously an important landmark in understan ding migration, is a thing of the past. What are the consequences of this change for how we imagine immigration?  And for how we regulate it?  In her Big Thinking lecture, Trudeau Fellow Catherine Dauvergne examines ke y dimensions of this dramatic shift in the response to the movement of pe ople – dimensions such as the crisis of asylum, the fear of fundamental Islam, and the demise of multiculturalism.  She also stakes out the cont ours of the new politics of immigration in a post post-colonial era, whe re the values of both settlement and society are lost, and immigration r egulation proceeds as if the past were unknown.
