About Us

Academia for Equality is a members' organisation for the democratisation of Israeli academia and society. A4E fights academic complicity in the oppression of the Palestinian people, campaigns against sexual violence and labor exploitation, protects academic freedom and defends critical voices against attacks and the silencing of dissent. A4E promotes alternatives to policies that undermine the value of free and equal public education.
