Watch part two

In the year since Israel's war on Gaza, activists and academics around the world have stepped up their calls for sanctions against Israel.

The campaigns are inspired by the global movement to pressure South Africa to end its policies of apartheid in the 1980s.
 
They include appeals to withdraw investments in Israel (divestment); to boycott Israeli goods and services, cultural institutions and universities; and to prosecute the top political and military leaders behind the war.

This month the leader of the Israeli Kadima Party, Tzipi Livni, was forced to abandon a visit to the UK over fears she could be arrested. A British court reportedly issued an arrest warrant accusing her of war crimes.

This year the National Court of Spain also launched an investigation into seven Israeli officials suspected of crimes against humanity.
 
But generally the diplomatic fallout of the war has been manageable for Israel, so what do the supporters of BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) hope to achieve?
 
On Tuesday, Riz speaks with a prominent Israeli scholar who sparked a firestorm of protest when he asked the world to boycott his country. Neve Gordon is head of the Department of Politics and Government at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. And Daragh Murray is a legal officer with the Gaza-based Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, which focuses on Israeli violations of international humanitarian law.
