Intimate Partner Violence and Access to Justice

Many survivors of intimate partner violence, especially when they leave or attempt to leave an abusive relationship, must navigate two or more legal domains -- among them family, criminal, child welfare, and immigration law.
While there is a sizeable body of Canadian research on access to justice challenges in each of these areas of law, this talk highlights the unique and complex challenges that arise for survivors when two or more of these
lega ldomains are engaged and the reality that this engagement is often triggered by abusive partners as a means to coerce, control, and harm their (former) intimate partners.

The Scholars’ Hub @ Home speaker series features discussions on a broad range of topics, with engaging lectures from some of York’s best minds.

Francophone African-Canadian Immigrants in the minorized Francophone community | Les Immigrants Afro-Canadiens Francophone au sein de la communauté Francophone minoritaire

The lived experience of Francophone Canadian immigrants who come from Sub-Saharan Africa is that they rarely benefit from the symbolic capital of speaking French. Instead, they encounter triple marginalization due to living in a minorized francophone community, because of their race, and by virtue of their French language accent. This talk explores the discriminations they face in the labour market in the GTA as well as the employment experience of these immigrants in the francophone health care and francophone education systems.

These findings can inform how best to create equitable and inclusive classrooms online.
