BDS Monitor Live

Tuesday Dec 21st, at 12:00 PM Eastern

The fall 2021 semester ends with pushback against the IHRA antisemitism definition growing on campus, the promotion of a BDS resolution by the Middle East studies Association, and evidence that university ‘diversity, equity, and inclusion’ personnel are strongly biased against Israel. These negative developments must be set against expanding normalization of relations between Israel and Arab countries. SPME’s Live Briefing Series covers recent BDS developments and gives listeners the opportunity to ask questions to SPME staff.
