Refuge in Israel

This article provides further insight into the situation of sub-Saharan African refugees in Israel. We have blogged previously on this issue and the plight of refugees in countries that are both geographically adjacent to asylum-migration routes out of African conflicts but also underdeveloped in terms of service provision and institutional protection for refugees. This leads to the bizarre position identified by the article in which Sudanese, Eritreans and refugees from Cote d’Ivoire have varying forms of permission to be physically within Israeli borders but with few rights or assistance beyond that are reduced to sleeping in temporary shelters.
