Fight the Architects’ Israel Boycott

RIBA (The Royal Institute of British Architects) has passed a motion calling for the suspension of the Israeli Association of United Architects (IAUA) from the International Union of Architects, saying it is complicit in the construction of illegal settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Here are some actions you can take.

Write to RIBA President Angela Brady at info@riba.org expressing your concerns. Please don’t berate them – use reasoned arguments about why the boycott harms the peace process, is a one-sided intervention in a complex conflict, and represents a double standard as RIBA is not suggesting action should be taken against any other national architects’ association than Israel’s, even where there are far more egregious human rights issues.

Please sign the We Believe in Israel petition here 

Let us know if you are an architect, or you have friends, family or professional dealings with architects who we could contact and put in touch with Constructive Dialogue, the anti-boycott group within the profession. You can contact us at nlfriendsofisrael@gmail.com or on this site through the Contact Us page.
