Academic Accountability: Who Finances Israel’s Delegitimization on Campus? 


Friday, May 8, 2015 at 9am  

Tel Aviv University, Dan David Building Hall 3

(Entrance from Gate 4)


The roundtable will explore the sources of funding for a range of academic activities that have contributed, over time, to the delegitimization of Israel. There is a virtual consensus that the academy has lead the campaign to present Israel as an apartheid-style state, paving the way for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) initiative. Yet there is little understanding of the financial underpinning of this effort.

The following panelists will address the various aspects of this issue.


Greetings: Gideon Kressel, Prof. (Em.) Ben Gurion University; Israel Academia Monitor
