IAA Resolution: End the Occupation, Oppose Academic Boycott, Support Dialogue

On June 11th this year the Israeli Anthropological Association passed a resolution calling upon the Israeli government to take key steps to bring about a just and viable future for Israelis and Palestinians. These include ending the occupation of the West Bank, efforts to rebuild Gaza, implementing equal rights for Israeli Palestinian citizens, and viable solutions to the tragedy of Palestinian refugees.

At the same time it calls upon anthropologists and others to recognize the important role that moderate segments in Israeli society—including academics—have played in the difficult struggle for peace in the region, to resist conflating academic institutions with government policies and actions, and to oppose initiatives to boycott universities in Israel.

ADIP fully supports the position of the IAA.
