BRICUP Briefing Document : Universities rebranding Israel’s image : Hasbara posts in Israel Studies threaten academic integrity


BRICUP | 23 Juin 2012 |

Since 2009 several UK universities have created posts in Israel Studies, all funded by external donors with histories of uncritical support for Israel. Some explicitly promote political aims, especially by diverting attention from Israel’s occupation of Palestine. Such efforts threaten academic integrity and freedom.

Bricup has prepared a briefing document to provide guidance about the threat and about strategies for local campaigns of opposition.

Please send further information and comments for future development of the briefing document or requests to support local campaigns via endorsement or practical assistance to blockhasbarastudies chez
