Op Ed: Why Academic Boycotts are Wrong
Chronicle of Higher Education
Israel, acadmic boycotts
Calls for an academic boycott of Israel and for universities to stop investing in Israeli companies have struck me with special force because I spent last spring as a Fulbright fellow in Israel, teaching bio-ethics at Bar-Ilan University, outside Tel Aviv. Academic boycotts undermine the basic premise of intellectual life that ideas make a difference, and the corollary that intellectual exchanges across cultures can open minds.
