The fall semester ended with BDS inspired antisemitism at the center of political debates. The Trump Administration’s Executive Order extending civil rights protections to Jewish students, the Labour Party’s antisemitism crises, and the endorsement of BDS by students and faculty, suggest ominous developments for 2020. SPME’s Live Briefing Series covers recent BDS developments and gives listeners the opportunity to ask questions to SPME staff.
