Transnational Migration to Israel in Global Comparative Context explores both how and why the recent influx of approximately two hundred thousand non-Jewish migrants from dozens of countries across the globe has led state officials to declare in definitive terms that Israel "is not on immigration country" despite its unwavering commitment to welcoming unlimited-numbers of "homeward-bound" Jewish immigrants. The presence of labor migrants, along with smaller groups of asylum seekers and victims of trafficking in women, has dramatically transformed the local labor economy of Israel/Palestine and generated a wide array of complicated legal, policy-related, cultural, and ideological questions and dilemmas for the Israeli state, local municipalities, and civil society.
