Israeli Apartheid Week sits within a global social movement, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions or BDS movement, which aims to exclude Israel from the economic, cultural and educational life of the rest of the world. It has been a feature of city and campus life since 2004 and takes place every year on more than 150 university campuses around the world. It advocates talks and panel discussions, films screenings and creative actions on campus to support the so-called Palestinian call for BDS. This article argues that students' unions and societies at British universities are acting unlawfully when they promote such events on campus.
