In broader terms, BDS refers to the application of pressure in an effort to change governmentand corporate practices. It is a non-violent tactic employed by a grassroots movement toachieve social justice. In addition to boycott, divestment, and sanctions, it also includescorporate engagement and morally responsible investment. Despite the narrow economictactic, the goal is to shame human rights violators and shape public opinion.
