The Year 2020 has seen BDS firmly established as a national and international political issue. Protestors pressuring Democratic presidential candidates and the UN’s new blacklist of firms working across the ‘Green Line’ are ominous developments showing the movement of BDS downstream from higher education. SPME’s Live Briefing Series covers recent BDS developments and gives listeners the opportunity to ask questions to SPME staff.
