Israeli Academic and Cultural Boycott

Wednesday, 18 December 2013 | A Public Affair

The American Studies Association reached a resolution this week that endorses and honors of the boycott of Israeli academic institutions. Votes that endorse the boycott, may have greater implications for the liberation Palestinian people, but for others the votes are viewed as an attack on academic freedom of Israelis.

On Wednesday December 18th, our host Karma Chavez discussed the boycott with a member of U.S. campaign’s organizing collective, Professor David Lloyd.

Chavez and Lloyd analyzed the complex and complicated questions that surround the BDS movement and well as the implications for the region as a whole.
