The fall semester begins with BDS increasingly at the center of American political debates. Following campus trends, political parties have grown more extreme but as the antisemitic nature of BDS is more widely understood, there are signs that limits are being reached. SPME’s Live Briefing Series covers recent BDS developments and gives listeners the opportunity to ask questions to SPME staff.
