In a letter published in the Irish Times
today, 61 Irish academics from a wide variety of disciplines called for a moratorium on EU
support of Israeli academic institutions until Israel abides by UN
resolutions and ends the occupation of Palestinian territories. While this letter does not call for a comprehensive boycott, it does demand that European academic institutions cease funding collaborative projects with Israeli institutions. It also calls for academics to refrain, where possible, from institutional collaboration with Israel. Such actions are to continue until Israel abides by international law, part of which is ending the occupation.
