Summary Since its inception in 2005, the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement has seen numerous boycotts against Israel in an effort to encourage withdrawal from what supporters of the movement consider to be occupied territories, along with recognition of the rights of Arab-Palestinian citizens and refugees. Supporters claim that Israel is an apartheid state, but this assertion is hotly contested. Many critics of BDS claim that the movement is anti-Semitic and promotes the delegitimization of Israel. This volume explores the varying perspectives on the movement, enabling readers to form their own opinions about its place in global politics
