Open Letter from a Former Haifa University Student

A former student from Haifa University, now a grad student at the LSE, writes to the UK's Association of University Teachers. You can read the entire letter here.

Haifa is a university in which one of every five students is Arab; in which loud but civilised political debates take place regularly; and one in which nobody was ever denied his/her freedom of expression. In my opinion, it is a hotbed of peace and dialogue that should be studied as a model for coexistence and not the opposite. Nevertheless, misled by a frustrated lecturer, you decided to boycott this amazing and diverse institute.

For more about the boycott, and why it still concerns so many of us, see this [thanks to MA for the link]
