The Criminalization of Migration: The U.S and Beyond
The Minerva Center for Human Rights at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Faculty of Law is thrilled to announce the establishment of the Bob and Sally Shafton Memorial Distinguished Visiting Scholar Series. The annual series is made possible by a generous gift to the Center from the Levenfeld family of Jerusalem in honor of their parents/grandparents, the late Bob and Sally Shafton of Los Angeles – and will enable the Center to annually host a prominent human rights scholar from the Los Angeles area for teaching, seminars and public lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
We are delighted to welcome Professor Jennifer Chacón of UCLA School of Law, a leading expert on immigration, citizenship, border control and human trafficking, as our inaugural Shafton Memorial Distinguished Visiting Scholar. During her stay in Jerusalem, Professor Chacón will teach a course at the Hebrew University’s Faculty of Law on “The U.S Constitution and the Rights of Migrants” and participate in a number of additional academic fora.
We invite you to the inauguration of the Shafton Memorial Series at the Hebrew University’s Mount Scopus campus on Wednesday, December 18, 2019, at 16:30, featuring a public lecture by Professor Chacón on the criminalization of immigration in the U.S. and beyond. The evening will also include introductory remarks by retired Israeli Supreme Court Justice Ayala Procaccia, herself a close friend of the Shaftons, and by a member of the Levenfeld family, as well as by Prof. Tomer Broude, Academic Director of the Minerva Center for Human Rights.
