The 1972 Uganda Asian Refugee movement was the first test of Canada's "Universal" immigration policy as applied to refugees. The talk will examine the reasons behind General Idi Amin’s decision to expel Uganda’s Asian community, and the Trudeau government’s reaction to the expulsion within a new immigration and refugee policy framework.
