The positionality of Mizrahi Jews (descendents of Jews from Arab and Muslim countries) has traditionally been neglected in legal academia. Drawing on critical race theory and critical legal studies, the emerging field of Mizrahi Legal Studies examines the specific status of Mizrahi Jews in Israeli law and society. This conference will take a leading role in shaping this growing scholarly movement.
