Dan Hiebert is a Professor of Geography at the University of British Columbia and the Co-Director of Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security, and Society (TSAS). He specializes in issues of immigration and mainly concentrates on the Canadian case. Within this broad field he has conducted projects on immigrant integration into the labour and housing markets of Canadian cities, and the socio-cultural changes that accompany immigration, especially the increasing superdiversity of Canadian society. In Canada the national policy of multiculturalism is worked out in cosmopolitan neighbourhoods, and this has been a theme of his work. Professor Hiebert has participated in a number of advisory roles and is a member of the Citizenship and Immigration Deputy Minister’s Advisory Council, as well as the Public Advisory Committee on Demographic and Migration Statistics (Statistics Canada).
