The Israeli Asylum System: Refugee exclusion in the land of refugees
Please join us for a brown bag lunch by Dr. Tally Kritzman-Amir on Israel’s asylum system. Kritzman-Amir will situate the exclusionary policy’s paradoxical relationship to the country’s founding narrative as a state for refugees, discuss the impact of this policy on refugee rights, and analyze the role the courts play within the current asylum regime. Kritzman-Amir is a Senior Lecturer of Immigration and International Law at the College of Law and Business, Israel, and a current Human Rights Program Visiting Fellow.
This event is being co-sponsored by the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic.
