Hyndman’s research focuses on 1) conflict, human displacement, and the geopolitics of humanitarian response and refugee protection; and 2) refugee settlement, participation and social inclusion in Canada. Current research projects probe a) how private refugee sponsorship is sustained over time in Canadian communities; 2) the motivations of sponsors and the meanings they attach to the work they do (is private voluntary sponsorship particularly Canadian?), with A. Macklin (P.I.) and other co-investigators; and 3) the social determinants of well-being and integration of Syrians who came after November 2015, with M. Hynie (P.I.) and others in BC, Ontario and Quebec.
