Whatis IAFI?

International Academic Friends of Israel (IAFI) is a not-for-profit organization devoted to promoting and supporting the free and open exchange of ideas and information in the international academic community. Our mission is to foster productive interactions between academics regardless of race, religion, nationality, or political preference.

In particular, we seek to ensure that Israeli academics and scientists are included and accepted in global academic and scientific circles and that their accomplishments in their respective fields are internationally heralded. We also support the exchange of ideas within the international community to help overcome divisions and prejudices and to lead toward peace in the Middle East.
