The fall 2020 semester concludes with the BDS movement in flux. The Trump Administration has changed the global geopolitical setting for BDS while the prospective Biden Administration is marginalizing its progressive advocates. But campus and local politics continue to be hotbeds of anti-Israel activism. SPME’s Live Briefing Series covers recent BDS developments and gives listeners the opportunity to ask questions to SPME staff.
