The internationalisation of Nonviolent Resistance: The Case of the BDS Campaign

Author(s): Marwan Darweish, Andrew Rigby

In: Journal of Resistance Studies, 45-71., Vol 4, No 1, 2018, pp. 45-71

The article examines the factors promoting significant international solidarity with specific campaigns against injustice. It does so through a study of the Boycott, Disinvestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign launched by Palestinian civil society bodies in 2005. The article compares the BDS movement with the international campaign against apartheid in South Africa (an inspiration for BDS) and discusses why BDS has been less effective.
