Lubaba Samin

Osgoode Hall Law School

Lubaba Samin is a PhD candidate at Osgoode Hall Law School. Her research seeks to analyze and reconstruct the legal criteria used to determine the deportability of non-citizens, drawing examples from the Canadian and UK contexts. She seeks to analyse how deportation is utilized to perpetuate inequity through denationalization and ‘crimmigration’. Her research also looks at re-evaluating the deportability of non-citizens and proposing an alternative framework of analysis that accounts for anti-colonial critiques in law to mitigate the inequities perpetuated by the current global deportation regime. Previously, Lubaba completed her LL.M from the University of Toronto in 2020 as well as her LLB from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in 2019. Her areas of interest include comparative international law, decolonization and the law, racialization, human rights, criminal justice reform, the law of sentencing, immigration law, and refugee law.
