The call for an academic boycott of complicit Israeli academic institutions is a call for universities, academic associations, and student governments and unions to refuse to be complicit in and normalize Israel’s war crimes, ongoing occupation, oppression and apartheid. In this lecture, Vijay Prashad, Professor of South Asian History and International Studies at Trinity College, will speak to the case for the academic boycott of Israeli academic institutions that are complicit in such crimes.
