University of Copenhagen says it will divest from companies operating in West Bank

The University of Copenhagen says it will halt investment in companies that do business in the West Bank amid student protests pressuring the campus to cut financial and institutional ties with Israel.

The university will, as of May 29, divest its holdings worth a total of about 1 million Danish crowns ($145,800) in Airbnb, and eDreams, it said in a post on social media platform X.

The university says it will work with fund managers to manage its investments and ensure they comply with a United Nations list of companies involved in Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
