The meeting at the Council of Higher Education that was supposed to take place on this Tuesday, October 23, has been postponed. Instead, a meeting of the sub-committee for quality assurance will take place on October 30, with Prof. Thomas Risse attending. During this meeting, the appeal submitted by Ben Gurion University to the sub-committee’s decision from 4/9/12 will be discussed. At this point, it is unclear when the general CHE meeting to discuss the sub-committee’s decision will take place. In the interim, the threat to close the department remains in place, as do the efforts to oppose it.
Update: A Special Meeting of the Sub-Committee of the CHE on October 30
