ABSTRACT
The article presents some reflections on academic boycott. One counter-argument, explored in some of the papers, maintains that the principle of academic freedom does in itself offer guidance in those instances in which academic freedom has been violated. In these instances, the argument continues, academic freedom may rightly be denied to those who deny academic freedom to others. It is understood clearly that academic freedom may be denied through state or corporate as well as institutional actions, and it is agreed that academic freedom cannot fairly be invoked to protect those who so abuse it.
