NYS Senate co-leader Jeffrey Klein (D-Bronx) and Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) introduced a bill that would give colleges and universities in New York 30 days to withdraw their support from groups like the American Studies Association, which recently voted for such an academic boycott, or NYS lawmakers Senate co-leader Jeffrey Klein (D-Bronx) and Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) want to strip aid from universities whose faculty participate in academic organizations that urge a boycott against Israel. The bill passed the Senate but is stalled in the Assembly. This is in response to the American Studies Association (ASA), which recently voted for such an academic boycott. New York University, Cornell, Columbia, SUNY Buffalo and SUNY Stony Brook are among the institutions with faculty affiliated with the ASA, made up of 5,000 professors.The ASA over-whelmingly voted to refuse to enter into formal collaborations with Israeli academic institutions, or with scholars who are expressly serving as representatives or ambassadors of those institutions , or on behalf of the Israeli government, until Israel ceases to violate international law. and human rights. We ll discuss the growing efficacy of the boycotts, divestiture and sanctions movement.
