Migdal on advocacy versus scholarship in Israel studies organization | Haaretz

April 18, 2019

Jackson School lecturer and Middle East scholar Joel Migdal is quoted in the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, about an organization of Israel studies scholars accused of supporting Israel advocacy efforts and undermining its professional integrity.

Migdal said in Haaretz, “I don’t think the organization is in jeopardy. It’s gone through these issues before, where people from the left thought people from the right were controlling the organization, and vice versa, and I think it will weather this storm just fine, too.”
