Cate Duin is pursuing her Master’s degree in the department of Political Science at McGill University. Prior to beginning her degree at McGill, Cate worked as the community engagement lead for the Minnesota affiliate of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS). Her responsibilities included developing and managing programming to connect newly arrived refugees with local residents and leading information sessions in the Minneapolis and Saint Cloud areas. Cate’s research interests centre on refugee resettlement and Canada’s private sponsorship model, along with nativist, anti-immigrant responses to resettlement in the Global North. Her most recent research focuses on the role played by gender in nativist politics in the United States.
