Chapter Summary

Speed and internationalisation were the two features characteristic of the movement for the boycott which was championed by the Board of Governors of the Université Paris-VI in France. The international academic boycott did not only involve the demand for non-renewal of European agreements with Israel. The intention was to exert some influence with a view to shifting Israeli policy, to bring pressure to bear which would act as a form of sanction and to set themselves up as champions of the campaign for the respect of human rights. The Université Paris-VI motion creates the image of a university which is not very aware of the consequences and even quite simply of the effects its decision could have on national and international opinion.
