As the academic year begins the BDS movement’s alliances with Black Lives Matter and other causes have begun to impact campuses. And while US states continue to put legal limits on BDS activities, support for Israel remains a contentious issue in the presidential campaign. SPME’s Live Briefing Series covers recent BDS developments and gives listeners the opportunity to ask questions to SPME staff.
Please remember that your support allows us to continue to bring the BDS Monitor and our other special reports about BDS and campus anti-Semitism.
