Issue 34 Editorials and Rejoinders

Inroads_34_cover

Is the purpose of immigration to benefit the economy of the receiving country or to provide a better life for immigrants themselves? A pair of articles in Inroads 34 examine this question in the context of Canada, where economic considerations prevail, and Sweden, where the well-being of immigrants is the primary concern. This issue also contains lively debate and trenchant analysis on a number of other timely topics: how to fix Canada’s Senate, the Quebec values charter, policy approaches to poverty and inequality, and the world’s response to the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
