Our Director, Yoni Forsyth, has written a piece on the anti-Israel student boycotts at Universities across the world. Yoni argues that the grassroots activists are being overlooked and local unions underfunded.

The article can be found at the Times of Israel website under the title “Another Student Boycott of Israel. Shocking, not Surprising.“
