Summary "Since its establishment, Israel has confronted a host of boycotts and movements that both sought to challenge its very existence and opposed any normalization of relations. In a similar vein, over the past decade the Israeli government and various non-governmental institutions have become increasingly preoccupied with a phenomenon coined 'the delegitimization of Israel, ' viewed primarily as a nonviolent protest movement calling for the international boycott and isolation of the State of Israel. Since then, questions regarding what constitutes delegitimization and the seriousness of the threat posed by the movement have occupied Israeli foreign policymakers and NGOs alike. In parallel, the information and social media revolutions, the growing impact of public opinion on decision makers in countries considered allies of Israel, and the expansion of the delegitimization movement into many new arenas have added to the complexity of the challenge. The Delegitimization Phenomenon: Challenges and Responses presents an analysis of the threat that the delegitimization and BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) campaigns pose to Israel, a discussion of their manifestations in various fields, and an examination of the dilemmas they present to Israel's decision makers. The articles compiled here aim to encourage extensive deliberation about the issue of delegitimization by examining its overall implications for security, strategy, and policy. They likewise provide insights for policymakers regarding Israel's position in the international arena in the face of the delegitimization efforts"--Publisher's web site
