The Commitment

As scholars associated with UK universities, and responding to the call from Palestinian civil society, we declare that we will not:

• accept invitations to visit Israeli academic institutions;
• act as referees in any of their processes;
• participate in conferences funded, organised or sponsored by them, or otherwise cooperate with them.

We will, however, continue to work with our Israeli colleagues in their individual capacities.

This commitment is our response to Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian land, and the intolerable human rights violations inflicted on all sections of the Palestinian people. We will maintain this position until the State of Israel complies with international law, and respects universal principles of human rights.
