The AAAS was the first academic association to declare its support for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement protesting the wide-ranging violation of Palestinian rights by the Israeli government. While the association was in many ways a “pioneer,” it has struggled to articulate this position in the years following the historic action. Srikanth critically considers the history and aftermath of the AAAS boycott.
