By Gal Levy

Gal Levy is a lecturer in the MA program in Democracy Studies at the Open University in Israel. His research focuses on the relationship between education, ethnicity and citizenship, and most recently, on the education of labor-migrant children and Arab education.

Seeking an explanation to the becoming of the Arab minority in Israel 'bearers of liberal citizenship rights', Gal Levy will explore the role of the state in delineating the boundaries of citizenship and ethnicity which allow and delimit their political and social incorporation.
