Abstract

This chapter surveys the history of boycott movements from the late eighteenth century to better understand the global campaign for boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) directed against Israel. The chapter argues that boycott movements have often been both instrumental and expressive in character and have had an ambiguous relationship to the rule of law. The debate on whether or not BDS is antisemitic has drawn attention away from these other, more significant, ambiguities and tensions within the movement.
