The Board of Directors of LAJSA, the Latin American Jewish Studies Association, has issued the following statement on academic boycotts:

LAJSA joins the AAUP and other major academic organizations and universities in opposing all boycotts of academics and academic institutions. We especially oppose selective boycotts on ideological grounds that use political or religious views as tests for participation in academic life. We have a fundamental commitment to the free exchange of ideas and boycotts only stifle such exchange.

LAJSA is now on Facebook. To "like" LAJSA, just go on Facebook and type in "Latin American Jewish Studies Association."

LAJSA now has regional chapters. See our Resources page for the details.
