Yinon Cohen

Tel Aviv University

Yinon Cohen, senior lecturer in the department of sociology and the department of labor studies, Tel Aviv University, Israel, completed several chapters of a book that will compare Israeli Jewish and Palestinian Arab immigration to the United States. Palestinian Arabs have made up about one-third of Israel's immigrants to the U. S. over the past four decades, a relatively high proportion that is explained, Cohen argues, by the discrimination they encounter in Israeli life. He also conducted research on the schooling of immigrants and assimilation of second generation immigrants in Israel.
