As the calendar year ends the US and campus environments for BDS are in flux. The results of the US presidential election, state legislation, and campus setbacks are subjecting the BDS movement, which in turn are changing the situation for Jews and supporters of Israel. SPME’s Live Briefing Series covers recent BDS developments and gives listeners the opportunity to ask questions to SPME staff.
