A PRIMER ON US ANTI-BOYCOTT LAWS

On 23 February, an article from Michael Volkov is concerned with US Treasury and Commerce Department regulations governing involvement in unsanctioned foreign boycotts.  Known collectively as the “antiboycott laws,” these regulations (and corresponding statutes) generally prohibit US persons and companies from participating in activities at odds with broader US foreign policy objectives.  The primary target of these laws is the Arab League’s long-standing controversial boycott of Israel, but participation in any unsanctioned boycott activity is also generally prohibited.

I would be grateful for any modest contribution for my time and ongoing costs of computer, relocation, and (still ongoing) removal costs, I have a page, where contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
