Provost Lecture Series - Dr. Robin Harper
from 04:00 PM to 05:30 PM
Over the last twenty years, more than 300,000 non-Jewish, non-Arab migrants (known as ‘foreign workers’) and their children have taken up residency in Israel and become increasingly part of Israeli quotidian life. Their presence challenges the State of Israel, Israeli society and the migrants themselves to think about the borders between Jewishness and Israeliness. The study of the Israeli case can potentially provide insight for other ethnic states with burgeoning migrant populations.
