The Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies (CDTS) was established in 2005 as a hub of excellence that enhances undergraduate and graduate life at the University of Toronto by speaking directly to students' experiences of migration and diaspora through an interdisciplinary lens drawn from both the social sciences and humanities. The work of the CDTS is comparative, qualitative and historically driven, and provides policy insights on pertinent issues in the world today.

Trafficking in Persons: Perspectives, Challenges, and Solutions Roundtable
The roundtable provided an opportunity to share perspectives and experiences, and identify key areas of collaboration with representatives from U.S. and Canadian law enforcement, First Nations communities, academic institutions, non-governmental and governmental organizations, and service providers, on Trafficking in Persons issues in the Province of Ontario. The participants worked on identifying provincial trafficking trends and best practices for data collection, investigation, prosecution, and support to survivors. They also discussed the purpose and methodology of State Department’s annual TIP report, discuss the 2014 report findings, and solicit recommendations for the 2015 report.
At the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies, scholars and students explore the profound implications of vast global movements of people, ideas and things. The Centre brings U of T’s strengths in the humanities and social sciences to bear on questions of migration, diaspora, homelands and belonging across different ethnicities and cultures. Comparative, qualitative and historically-driven in their approaches, our experts provide critical insights on policy issues affecting multicultural societies.

"The great thing about the DTS program is that, whether you consider yourself a member of a diaspora or not, you will find the subject matter to be equally relevant for Canadian society and the international arena. As a student from the Mississauga campus, one of the best features of the program is its inter-disciplinary and cross-campus nature. This allowed me to take courses and meet professors I would have otherwise never encountered."
