Two further academic associations have followed the lead of the American
Studies Association
and endorsed the Academic Boycott.

CES resolution
“endorses and will honor the call of Palestinian
civil society for a boycott of Israeli academic institutions.   Be
it also resolved that the Critical Ethnic Studies Association supports
the protected rights of students and scholars everywhere to engage in
research and public speaking about Palestine and the state of Israel
and in support of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.”

ALA agreed
“we are resolving to act against a state that has
taken actions that have resulted in the dispersal of millions of Palestinian
people around the Middle East and North Africa (including Egypt and
Tunisia), that has targeted African refugees by placing them in internment
camps indefinitely, and that has collaborated with authoritarian regimes
in Africa, either by their work in extractive industries, or in the
shipment of arms to repressive regimes. The resolution, like the long
boycott of South Africa and of Southern Rhodesia, is intended to awaken
the world’s conscience to a situation that must change.”
