Livianna Tossutti

Associate professor, Department of Political Science, Brock University

My areas of research expertise encompass immigration and diversity policies in Canada, the U.S. and select west European countries, the political and civic engagement of immigrants, minorities and youth, and the election of diverse candidates. I am currently writing a book on how Canadian municipalities have adapted their planning processes, policies and practises in response to international migrants and racialized residents in their communities. I am the lead author (with Eric Mintz, Kathy Brock and Doreen Barrie) of Canadian Politics Today: Democracy, Diversity and Good Government, a fully digital and interactive text on Canadian politics, and co-author of 3 previous editions of the text. I have authored an Elections Canada monograph about practises to encourage the voting participation of ethnocultural communities in Canada and other western democracies, as well as book chapters, commissioned research reports and journal articles published in venues including the Canadian Journal of Political Science, Canadian Ethnic Studies, Party Politics, West European Politics, and the Journal of Canadian Studies. My work has been supported by more than $1 million in external and internal research grants and federal government contracts.
