Ron Putnam
01:31:33
Interesting point on the distinction between immigrant and refugee. In my mind, a refugee is a type of immigrant. However the story behind the impetus of arriving in a new country can be significant.
Laya Lakkaraju
01:33:43
in policy-making, when you telling other people's story how do you make sure you are not co-opting their struggle and are giving them a platform and a voice?
Adria Moore
01:35:48
@Laya - go talk to them, to get their voices and stories and to understand their lived experiences.
Andy Galindo
01:36:02
the difference between refugees and immigrants is not subjective but legal… they mean different obligations for the State were they live
Laya Lakkaraju
01:37:00
Thanks @Adria for your response!
Chris Ashe
01:38:14
What is the responsibility of government officials in informing citizens on immigrants/refugees? Is our role to promote the benefits - or is it to collect accurate data and information on the positive contributions, and challenges, that countries and communities experience when they make the decision to facilitate inward forms of migration? So - do we provide the accurate information (good and bad) and allow our citizens to make informed decisions - or is our role to promote migration (which could be seen as being propogandist - versus balanced)?
Julia Drew-Watt
01:38:24
At the CBOC Immigration Summit last week, one of the speakers, the Ambassador of Germany to Canada, described two kinds of immigrants: those who we need (for economic, skills, other reasons) and those who need us (refugees and those with nowhere else to go).
Adriana
01:38:55
Very interesting point about the important role played by cities.
Jennifer Morgan Jones
01:39:25
@Julia and sometimes they can be both :-)
Ben Rudgley
01:39:58
Thank you all for your questions, keep them coming! We will soon move from the panel discussion (with questions which were sent ahead of time) to live Q&A
Adriana
01:40:07
Q: How do you overcome the challenges when municipal/provincial/federal approaches to immigration are different? For example, when the city is welcoming, but the province not so much?
Kel Bennett @ IRCC
01:40:11
@Chris Ashe, I think there's something to said for both fact based and story based conversation. But it's a nuanced picture; it's important to know that the people you're talking to understand the fulsome idea of what migration means to a community.
Tala Al-Rousan
01:40:31
What about the concept of “othering and belonging” in story telling
Felisa Ponce
01:41:05
I agree with @Jennifer, @Julia. Especially considering the economic boost being reported in Germany due to refugees' contributions: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/germany-refugee-intake-boost-economy-ageing-population-unemployment-a8901161.html
Andy Galindo
01:41:13
@Julia I like the idea of keeping away from black and white options… whether they are here because we need them or the other way around, in both cases we can get good thing out of that relationship. And that is a 2 way street
Laya Lakkaraju
01:41:15
also interested to understand how we make sure as policy-makers we capacity-build so that locals/indegenious as well as immigrants have spaces for economic and social growth. and the narrative shifts from looking at immigrants as contributors to sodicety as soon as they land somewhere.
Tom Hashemi
01:41:24
there's a nice quote from George Lakoff that reaffirms Sunder's point: “One of the fundamental findings of cognitive science is that people think in terms of frames and metaphors… When the facts don’t fit the frames, the frames are kept and the facts ignored.”
Alejandro
01:41:49
could you put up the graphic of the brain again?
shruti kapoor
01:41:55
what is ur recommendation on how people can hold public servants accountable for their policies and actions (or lack off)? especially in the case when the government is corrupt
Sarah Sakha
01:42:28
I am sometimes pegged as being too "emotional" when making an appeal via storytelling, generally to lead up to advocacy fora policy - personally or professionally - because migration is such an important and personal issue to me. Is it on me to tone down my empathy/emotion, or for us to push back against the overall narrative of "too much emotion" particularly for female journalists/policymakers?
Edward Yosilevsky
01:43:10
it’s great point: story and evidence have to go together!
Kel Bennett @ IRCC
01:43:12
@Sarah Sakha, I think pushing back is important. I would check out the idea of tone policing, as well.
Andy Galindo
01:43:23
@Lisa how useful are numbers to convey messages?
Linda MacMillan
01:44:07
Can you speak to practical ideas about how to look at data and evidence with an open mind, and to "hear" the story the evidence tells, in order to convey that... rather than beginning with a story in mind, and then trying to select data to support that pre-committed story?
julian williamson
01:44:15
Will Storr's The Science Of Story Telling is worth a read for the neuroscience perspective
Julia Drew-Watt
01:44:20
@Andy - yes, absolutely - she went further to say how much we benefit from the second group, and how the first group benefits - it certainly isn't all one way!
Kimberley Boutilier
01:45:06
What role do stories have in policy proposal documents?
Jeffrey Matt
01:45:50
In this moment of disinformation, are their risks associated with over using narrative or anecdote? I'm worried these approaches can be misused as well as they can be used. Narratives are much harder to dispute.
Tom Hashemi
01:46:13
@julian - thanks for that. will take a look
Angela Renwick
01:48:15
I have to give absolute praise to Mike for speaking of the fire and that Syrian family who has suffered so much. The emotion was so powerful for a family trying to rebuild their lives - I completely agree - evidence and emotion were so critical.
Sarah Sakha
01:49:04
Thank you so much, Mike, Lisa, and Kel.
Alejandro
01:49:11
some of us are not ready to have too much empathy, thus some of us are afraid of experience emotions and particularly in front of others

01:50:11
Bravo Mayor Savage from Edmonton city hall. In various parts of the country, right-wing groups are on the rise (as are their membership and media attention). By focusing on these story-telling principles, are you deliberately focusing on the positive versus addressing these groups directly (thereby limiting their oxygen, so to speak)?
Ben Rudgley
01:50:17
Thank you for joining us, Stacy! The recording + slides (as well as additional resources) will be sent to all registrants following the event.
David Meleshko
01:50:19
A problems is that populist politicians have been vey successful in telling stories that connect with people by triggering their fears. While those making the counter arguments are failing to do so.
Tom Hashemi
01:51:30
@David - completely agree with you. Check out http://humanpolicy.weareflint.co.uk - our thoughts on how that needs to change (including that Lakoff quote)
Mahmud Naqi
01:53:21
Just to echo what David is pointing out - watching this, it is actually quite alarming how well anti-immigrant groups are intuitively using many of the lessons pointed out here to advance their perspective, and how savvy they are at a range of media, including social media
Lisa Witter
01:53:33
@ben can you share the brain image again?

julian williamson
01:58:34
The Cambridge introduction to narrative by Abbott is also well worth a read
Nicolas Ventosa
01:59:26
I wonder how can we use storytelling and data narratives to tackle cognitive distortions? This is very important, considering that nowadays people read and double check less - and are easily triggered by content (e.g. memes, social media publications, whatssap groups) with no evidence base.
julian williamson
01:59:34
Any thoughts on using story to build trust

@tom there are great citizen engagement frameworks and tools. For example Portugal did a nationwide participatory budgeting at ATMS!
Lisa Witter
02:01:07

What happens when the other side also uses stories? How do you counter a story without always resorting to facts?

Such a great point about language Mayor Savage! In Calgary, it's Tagalog, Punjabi and Cantonese

Love the points on public libraries being the heartbeats of every city - especially for new citizens - in Calgary - this is completely true.

<3 Halifax even more now! Great example of what a welcoming city looks like - leadership and public engagement together making a powerful foundation for inclusion.

As a resident of Halifax, I can agree with Mayor Savage that realistic expectations were set when the Syrian refugees were coming and the community was asked to welcome them and embrace their needs and long term potential to contribute.
