This panel invites presentations that address social, cultural and political aspects of professional regulatory bodies in Canada and beyond? What is the significance and role of such bodies in relation to global, national and local structures, experiences and identities? How have regulatory bodies changed over time and place and what do these changes signify? How do professional regulatory bodies affect social relations, individual experiences and identity formations? The panel seeks to explore these and related questions from various epistemological and methodological perspectives paying particular attention to the ways in which the regulation of professions affect (im)migrants and their communities.
