In response to the recent advert by a number of British academics to cease co-operating with Israeli Universities the British Association for Jewish Studies (BAJS), representing scholars of many backgrounds and a variety of perspectives on the State of Israel, deplores any attempt to weaken educational links with Higher Education institutions in Israel. We believe that such actions contradict the aims of scholarship and the mission of an academic body, and do not contribute to the resolution of the conflict. BAJS will continue to promote and strengthen educational links with Higher Education institutions in Israel.
