University Heads Partner with Hillel International to Combat Academic Boycotts



The Committee of University Heads in Israel announced on Tuesday a partnership with Hillel International - the Foundation for Jewish Campus Life to counter academic boycotts. The fight against boycotts cannot be conducted solely by universities from Israel but should involve organizations operating abroad,” said Prof. Menahem Ben-Sasson, president of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and chairman of the Committee of University Heads. “Boycotting a single researcher or an academic institution is a phenomenon of serious consequences for academic freedom and for the cooperation between universities essential to the development of teaching and research,” he added.
