At its Annual Congress, the Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI)
became the first academic union in Europe to endorse the Palestinian
call for an academic boycott of Israel. The motion, which refers to
Israel as an “apartheid state”, calls for “all members
to cease all cultural and academic collaboration with Israel, including
the exchange of scientists, students and academic personalities, as
well as all cooperation in research programmes” was passed by
a unanimous vote.
