Let Me Be a Refugee

Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines the process and the key institutional players that are involved in refugee status determination in Canada. The regime is based on a conceptualization of administrative justice that values efficiency and expertise in decision-making. Bureaucratic centralization and high levels of administrative agency insulation from both politics and judicial review have led to consistent and innovative policy development, but growing pressure on the administrative agency over time.
