Boycott Israel poster
Is BDS fostering change or simply making noise?
The boycott movement has gone on the defensive despite its activities capturing numerous headlines in Israel and abroad. But do its actions really change our lives or are they merely a media campaign which cause noise but fail to achieve any objectives? The experts answer.

The BDS movement has now been in existence for a few years and has dedicated itself to imposing international boycotts on Israel in different arenas including, inter alia, economic, academic and social.



With the boycotts, the organization aims to completely alter the discourse on how all walks of life in Israel are portrayed in the media.


Based on the number of headlines in the last year related to the movement, it may be concluded that their strategies, often including demonstrations vilifying Israel, are having the desired effect and that the tide is gradually turning against the country.

Has Israel's economy really been affected by the boycotts? Do the noise, rabble-rousing and vitriol really affect relations between Israel and university campuses?
