In a massive blow to the Boycott, Divestment, Sanction (BDS) movement, the American Anthropological Association voted to reject a resolution for the academic boycott of Israel, it was announced Tuesday.
The resolution, which sought to officially adopt a boycott to refrain from formal collaborations with Israeli academic institutions, though not of individual academics, was narrowly defeated by 2,423 votes against and 2,384 votes in favor.
The full body of the association, comprising some 10,000 members, was encouraged to vote on the resolution over the course of the past six weeks. The AAA reported that 51% of its eligible members voted, the largest turnout in AAA history.
