Ambassador Danny DanonPermanent Mission of Israel to the United Nations
Last May, the Permanent Mission of Israel to the United Nations led by Ambassador Danny Danon made history as over 2,000 students and professionals joined us at the United Nations to combat the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, and to proclaim their enduring support to the State of Israel.
This was only the initial step in our fight against the global campaign of hate, demonization and delegitimization.
Today we are moving this important battle to the legal arena.
There will be high-level discussions on the issues of law, policy and legislation related to BDS. By focusing on the legal tools and strategies needed to combat BDS we plan on making real progress in our battle against the boycott movement.
Participants and speakers will include law students, legal academics, and international law experts. The event will conclude with the issuing of an original position paper which will contain operational recommendations for countering the BDS movement worldwide in courts and parliaments.
