2016 Annual Assessment

Sixteen U.S. states have passed or are close to passing anti-BDS legislation. Thus far, these efforts have been largely successful. We offer the following recommendations moving forward:

  1. The success of anti-BDS legislation and its momentum should be utilized to create a new and modern narrative for reinforcing Israel’s legitimacy.
  2. Continuing legislative efforts should be encouraged, but limited to states where success is expected. In states where such legislation is in doubt, the boomerang effect must be considered.
