Created by the Jewish Federations of North America in 2018, this thorough 23-page long report provides important information about economic migrants and asylum seekers in Israel. The article defines key terms, differentiating between “economic migrants,” “asylum seekers,” “refugees,” and “illegal aliens,” and then explains the situation of two major groups of asylum seekers in Israel: those from Eritrea and Sudan, and those from Georgia and Ukraine. It describes the varying approaches to these different population groups within both government policy and the general public, outlining the goals of both the government and Israeli human rights organizations working in the field. Although the report appears lengthy, it includes graphs and charts depicting statistics and trends, a list of NGOs working in the field, a comprehensive glossary of terms, and detailed end notes.
