Palestine

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. The trip resulted in a published collective statement on the situation in Palestine, strongly supporting and endorsing the call to boycott. 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.
