Universtities committed to divesting from the border industry
So far 4 UK universities have committed to divest from the border industry.
October 2022 – Cardiff Metropolitan University becomes the first university in the UK to divest from the border industry
November 2023 - The University of Kent, Northumbria University and Worcester University become the first English universities to divest from the border industry
For this campaign, we recognise a full divestment as the absence of investments in any of the 70 companies on the Border Divestment List. We currently recognise a commitment to screen companies involved in Border Security and Control, Detention and/or Deportation as a partial divestment from the Border Industry.
