Processes of Globalization:
Impact on Contemporary Anti-Semitism and Anti-Israel Sentiment
In the discourse surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, extreme criticism of Israel (e.g., Israel is an “apartheid” state, or that the Israel Defense Forces deliberately target Palestinian civilians), are coupled with radical policy campaigns (e.g., academic boycotts, divestment from companies doing business with Israel). Such activism is often criticized as a form of neo anti-Semitism (as Israel is singled out for special treatment). In his research, Prof. Small has applied a detailed statistical methodology in order to analyze this issue.
Prof. Charles Asher Small is the Director of the Yale Initiative on the Interdisciplinary Study of Anti-Semitism (YIISA). YIISA is based at Institution for Social and Policy Studies (ISPS) Yale University. It is the first such scholarly institute in a North American University. Prof. Small is also the President and Founder of the Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy.
