Express your support for Associate Professor Jake Lynch’s recent refusal to accept a proposed fellowship between Hebrew University and the University of Sydney’s Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies. To have accepted the proposed fellowship of Hebrew University academic Dan Avnon would have violated the CPACSs’ official commitment to the global campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law. This campaign includes a boycott of institutional links with Israeli universities.
The University of Sydney’s institutional partnerships should not come at the expense of Palestinian human rights. Therefore we also demand an end to the strong relationship between the University of Sydney and the Technion, an Israeli university uniquely and directly implicated in war crimes.
