American Studies Association backs academic boycott of Israel | RT News

The American Studies Association (ASA) leadership is pushing a plan to boycott Israeli universities, saying that Palestinian students and scholars currently face severe obstructions to their right to education “due to the occupation.”

The resolution was passed unanimously by the association’s 20-member national council – composed of elected representatives from the general ASA membership.

ASA president Curtis Marez said the “boycott is the best way to protect and expand academic freedom and access to education.”
