SPME Petition 2

An Appeal From Scholars WorldWide To NATFHE Members: We Urge You to Oppose All Motions to Boycott Israel Scholars Your Annual Meetings May 27-29, 2006...THIS PETITION IS NOW CLOSED: HOWEVER IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE KEPT UP TO DATE ON THE BOYCOTT AND OTHER ISSUES, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SIGN THE PETITION TO RECEIVE THE SPME FACULTY FORUM UPDATES

We, the undersigned faculty members from around the world, urge the Members and Board of the British National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education to oppose any resolution coming to the floor for a vote and/or defeat all resolutions that should be voted upon that would boycott scholars and faculty from Israeli academic institutions at the annual meeting of NATHFE, May 27-29, 2006

Academic boycott actions are antithetical not only to the principles of academic freedom, but also to the quest for peaceful resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Academics often have the knowledge and skills specifically needed for conflict resolution, and can work with colleagues and policy makers from opposing sides on developing equitable solutions to complex problems. Boycotting would deprive the world of the potential contributions of Israeli scholars in these and other humanitarian efforts and would confer no benefit to the Palestinian people.

Those who perpetuate and participate in such boycotts are separating themselves from the academic community as opposed to bringing it together to work for peace and support academic freedom.

We urge our colleagues in the United Kingdom to withdraw or defeat these resolutions and we pledge ourselves to encourage our colleagues from around the world to oppose this boycott action.
