BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A resolution passed at Western Washington University says boycotts against specific countries won’t be approved by the student government.
Boycotting companies with ties to Israel has been discussed recently at several colleges.
Associated Students President Carly Roberts says the decision was inspired by the negative effects of boycotts on other campuses.
The resolution says taking action against a country can cause students to be harassed because of their nationality.
Roberts says it’s not a response to the movement against Israel, but is meant to promote critical thought, respect and collaboration on all foreign relations issues.
