1 AMHERST ST, Cambridge, MA 02142
In the last years, the Israeli asylum system institutionalized, but at the same time became increasingly exclusionary, to the point of preventing the entry of any asylum seekers and promoting the deportation of all the asylum seekers currently in Israel. The talk will describe the gradual processes of institutionalization and exclusion, and discuss the broader implications on refugee protection and responsibility sharing.
