The University of Johannesburg (UJ) senate has voted to discontinue its partnership with an Israeli university unless the relationship is “amended to include Palestinian universities”.
In a statement the university also said they would not “engage in any activities with Ben-Gurion University that have direct or indirect military implications.”
Ben-Gurion University has until the beginning of April 2011 to meet the demands.
Several notable South African academics and Archbishop Desmond Tutu had petitioned for UJ to terminate the relationship.
