Open Letter to Members of the American Studies Association

The AAUP, which opposes academic boycotts as violations of academic freedom, is disappointed by the ASA council’s vote and urges ASA members to reject this resolution.

AAUP Statement on ASA Vote

The AAUP today released a statement on the vote announced this morning by the membership of the American Studies Association (ASA) to endorse an academic boycott of Israel. While the AAUP takes no position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, we have opposed all academic boycotts in principle since 2005 when we published our report On Academic Boycotts.
