In support of students and other activists camping on the Unil site and demanding a call for a ceasefire in Gaza and a boycott of Israeli universities, a letter currently signed by more than 200 employees of the University of Lausanne is circulating on the campus. Among them, a few professors – mainly from the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences and the Faculty of Geosciences and Environment – ​​many assistants, doctoral students, research managers. “As professors and researchers, we must always consider the moral integrity of our collaborations, including with other universities,” they write. This is why we firmly support the request made by students to identify in a transparent manner the partnerships that Unil could maintain with public or private Israeli institutions, in order to put an end as quickly as possible to any collaboration with institutions linked to the Israeli government or which have not expressed their opposition to the current policy.”
