The topics of discussion that would have been explored this class are: the continuation of the theme of in-groups and out-groups in terms of refugees. One response in particular was calling for a sense of balance in this debate: between safety and inclusion of refugees. In a way, this is adhering to the idea in global politics that sovereignty and borders do have meaning. An out-group, refugees, are assigned a separate value in the nation than the people born inside the borders. The second topic of discussion would be religious diversity inside a nation and the tolerance principle. The last was a personal anecdote with my own grandmother coming to Canada as a refugee and a comparison to the last major wave of displaced people after the Second World War.
