BERLIN - An Israeli academic was reinstated as a speaker for a slated October conference on Wednesday afternoon, following Jerusalem Post press queries. Ronen A. Cohen had been expelled from the conference because of his affiliation with an academic institution located in the settlement of Ariel.

Cohen received an email on Wednesday informing him that the organizers of the 18th International Congress of DAVO in Berlin on October 6-8 had "accepted the argument that academic freedom should have priority in comparison to considerations of international law."
