In January 2012, a delegation of scholars and teachers working in the United States went on a week-long investigative trip to Israel/Palestine organized by the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel.

In this Periscope, alongside the full version of the collective statement and the organizers’ contextualization of the trip and campaign, members of the delegation offer their individual reflections on their experiences and views of Palestine today.
