Jamie Chai Yun Liew is the Director of the Institute of Feminist and Gender Studies, and a law professor at the University of Ottawa. She is an expert in immigration, refugee and citizenship law, as well as administrative law and public law. She also practices as a lawyer and has appeared at the Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court and the Federal Court of Appeal.

Jamie’s current research examines the meaning of citizenship, legal barriers for stateless persons to obtain citizenship/nationality, race and gendered implications of Canadian law on migrants, and how Canada’s immigration and refugee system marginalizes those navigating the process. She is currently completing a book manuscript on statelessness and the law.

Jamie's debut novel DANDELION is available for pre-order at any book store in Canada.
