The Council has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that it has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.
The Council said that the Definition was adopted on 10th February 2020.
As part of its response, the Council provided minutes of a Council meeting on 10th February 2020, which show that the Definition was adopted.
There is no reference to the examples in the minutes, accompanying report or Freedom of Information response and therefore we cannot assess with certainty whether the Definition has been adopted in full.
Campaign Against Antisemitism considers the examples to be integral to the Definition, without which an adoption is not complete. In a statement on 7th August 2018, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance reiterated the integrality of the examples to the Definition.
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 12th August 2021, to which the Council responded on 7th September 2021.
On 1st April 2023, the Council will be replaced by Cumberland Council (covering Allerdale Borough, Carlisle City and Copeland District Councils).
