Part of the Center's "Rights in Conflict" luncheon series.

With Tally Kritzman-Amir, Senior Lecturer at the College of Law and Business, Israel; Visiting Fellow at the Human Rights Program, Harvard Law School; and Scholar in Residence, Hadassah Brandeis Institute.

Although Israel is a signatory to the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, it has yet to provide adequate protection to non-Jewish refugees. The talk will discuss the different exclusionary practices which together make up the Israeli asylum regime, in a comparative context, recently reaching their peak with a decision to deport African asylum seekers to third countries.

Event will take place in McElroy 237. Registration required for lunch here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc2ATl6XadqV2w0op0r3aUp0oBz7XRI0unYzR-YZpBRxMrA-Q/viewform
