Israeli universities issue warning over judicial overhaul
Israel’s university chiefs warned that weakening the justice system would lead to an international boycott of Israeli academia, with “international colleagues not coming to Israel, with restrictions on access to international research foundations, with foreign industries reluctant to cooperate with Israeli academics and with the exclusion of Israeli researchers from the international community of research and education”.
They called on the government to “refrain from a rapid constitutional change, which is being taken without a meaningful parliamentary and public conversation over the issues”. Adding that “the basic principles of the Declaration of Independence must be preserved, particularly those relating to the rights of minorities and human dignity”.
