Lori Wilkinson




Dr. Lori Wilkinson focuses on the migration and resettlement experiences of refugees, particularly children, youth and their families. She is the director of Immigration Research West and was recently appointed as Canada Research Chair in Migration Futures. Wilkinson is currently working on a nationally funded study on the arrival experiences of Afghan refugees to Canada, a study of gender- and sexually-based violence experienced by refugee women, and heads a three nation study of the socioeconomic and mental health effects of the COVID-19 social and economic restrictions on immigrant and refugee families.
