The Annual General Meeting of the Exeter University and College Union (UCU)
voted in favor of non-collaboration with Ariel University. Similar motions have been approved by Leeds, Open University, Aberdeen, Brunel and Brighton UCU General Meetings.
Branch Motion (21/05/2019):
Collaboration with Ariel University
This Branch notes:
- That Israeli settlements in occupied territory constitute a breach of international law, as is affirmed by (among many others) the British Government, the United Nations (Security Council and General Assembly), the International Court of Justice, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the High Contracting Parties to the Geneva Convention.
This Branch resolves:
- To note therefore that, because Ariel University is built in a settlement, for the University of Exeter to recognise degrees from Ariel University, or to collaborate with Ariel University in any way, would be complicity in the breaking of international law.
