Watch the Debate: Should Academics Boycott Israel? (with Ghada Karmi, Ilan Pappe & Alan Johnston)


Below is the video of the debate organised by Academics for Palestine and hosted by the TCD Irish School of Ecumenics, which took place in Trinity College Dublin on Wednesday 12th November 2014.

Speakers supporting the Boycott were Palestinian academic Ghada Karmi and Israeli academic Ilan Pappe, and opposing it was British academic Alan Johnston (who was given double time as no other speaker could be found despite many attempts). The evening was chaired by Newstalk’s Shona Murray.
