BRICUP Introduction
Having invited Brenna Bhandar, a prominent Canadian academic, to participate in collaborative research, a centre in Jena has learned of her support for BDS and disinvited her from its events. Brenna taught for several years at Queen Mary University of London and at SOAS before returning to her native Canada. During this time she was an active member of BRICUP, helping with our mission of supporting the boycott of Israeli academic institutions. The action taken against her by the University of Jena is a personal attack on an individual for her political activism; and the intention of such attacks is also to discourage others from putting their heads over the parapet.

By contrast the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has a near absolute bar on boycotting individual academics – the exceptions being individuals who are acting on behalf of the state. Them aside, the  targets of the academic boycott are purely educational institutions, all of which are structurally involved in the suppression of Palestinian rights. BDS is a principled campaign aiming at raising consciousness of Israel’s apartheid system, of which its universities are an integral part. The attempt to silence Brenna Bhandar’s voice is an unprincipled power play unworthy of an educational institution.

The following is an Open Letter which all academics are invited to sign.

Open Letter on academic freedom and BDS in Germany
Professor Brenna Bhandar (University of British Columbia) was invited to visit the German Research Foundation-funded “Structural Change of Property” Collaborative Research Centre based at the University of Jena as a Mercator Fellow in late April for research workshops and a public talk. On February 13, one of the convenors of the Centre communicated to her by email that, having learned of her support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign targeted at the Israeli state, “we cannot and do not want to hold the planned event” in Berlin since this “would definitely be understood (especially in the very heated debates following the Documenta) as support for the BDS by our research centre”. The convenor added that they considered “the call for a boycott to be wrong against the backdrop of German history on the one hand and in view of the current situation [in Israel] on the other”. Prof. Bhandar had been approached by members of the Centre as far back as 2019, who made it clear at the time that including fellows whose work centred race and colonialism in the study of property was an important concern for them. She was formally invited in late 2021 to take up the fellowship. While not cancelling the Mercator fellowship outright, it was made unequivocally clear in the initial email and in subsequent communications, that the Centre did not want to be associated with Prof. Bhandar in a public forum, and that her visit was to be limited to exchanges with other researchers in Jena. The suggestion of continuing to draw on her work and expertise in a somewhat sequestered manner is a particularly problematic suggestion when addressed to a racialized woman scholar.
The retraction of the public component of the Mercator fellowship on the basis of Prof. Bhandar’s personal commitment to solidarity with a call from Palestinian civil society is a glaring and unjustified breach of principles of academic freedom. As the public event that was an integral component of Prof. Bhandar’s fellowship was not going to address BDS but rather the themes of the Centre as they relate to her academic work, it is invidious to suggest that BDS would have been at its core. Unless that is, as seems to be the case, the Centre has decided to adopt the neo-McCarthyite principle that it refuses to be associated in any way not with the public advocacy of BDS but with any scholar who has at any time been a signatory to a BDS statement. In that case, at a minimum it should accord fellow academics the respect and consideration to inform them of this fact before – as Prof. Bhandar did – they devote time, thought and energy to collaborative research with the Centre. The convenors and members of the Centre should also reflect on what the consequences of treating support for BDS as license for disaffiliation involves. In holding to this position, the Centre, its convenors, and members would be signalling that the vast majority of Palestinian academics are unwelcome to public scholarly discussion in Germany, and that so are countless academic supporters of Palestinian rights. There is a bitter irony in systematically excluding those living under conditions of dispossession, occupation, and displacement from research on “structural changes in property” in the contemporary world.
Prof. Bhandar’s experience follows in the wake of the well-known attacks on numerous scholars, artists, and intellectuals for supporting (or not denouncing) BDS. The effort to exclude voices criticising Israel or arguing for Palestinian rights from the German public sphere seems to be accelerating after the Bundestag’s factious designation of BDS as anti-Semitic in 2019 – though it bears noting that German courts have repeatedly deemed actions taken on the basis of that legislation unconstitutional. The climate around BDS prompted the directors of many major German cultural institutions to set up the “Initiative GG 5.3 Weltoffenheit” (‘world-openness’) to affirm the right to publicly and critically discuss matters pertaining to Israel/Palestine in Germany. The “Structural Change of Property” Centre and its members, like other academic and cultural institutions in Germany, have an ethical duty to publicly clarify whether they intend to sacrifice academic and artistic freedom, scholarly discussion, and openness to international and marginalised voices for the sake of a definition of anti-Semitism that has repeatedly resulted, among other things, in forbidding Jewish as well as Palestinian voices from engaging in public debates on questions of rights and justice in Israel/Palestine.
