Universities committed to divesting from the border industry
So far 1 UK university has committed to divest from the border industry. For this campaign, we only recognise full divestments, meaning an institution has no funds invested in any of the 60 companies on the Border Divestment List. If you want to get your uni on this list, check out the Divest Borders page for more info on the campaign and how to get involved on your campus!
