North American college campuses are increasingly playing host to targeted efforts to assault Israel’s legitimacy. And while most students support a negotiated two-state solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict, several groups regularly use campuses as a forum to promote policies that demonize and delegitimize the Jewish State. From anti-Israel conferences to annual “Israeli Apartheid Week” events, these occurrences that not only undermine Israel’s right to exist but also threaten any real chance for peace.
In response, IAN actively fosters campus-community partnerships in order to create dynamic programming that will lead the conversation about Israel on campus.
