Asylum Seekers in Israel: What is the Situation?
May 24 @ 7:45 pm
Israel is home to more than 30,000 asylum seekers from Eritrea and Sudan who do not have access to legal status as refugees. In this webinar, I will provide an overview of the historical, political, and social context of this social issue, with an aim to spread awareness of the present and future challenges for this community.
