The Council has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism in full, including all of its examples.
The Definition was adopted on 7th February 2018.
The Council has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that it does apply the Definition in disciplinary matters.
The Council has told Campaign Against Antisemitism: “When the Council originally adopted the definition of antisemitism the report did not contain examples of antisemitism. However, following contact from yourselves, we added examples to the information provided upon our website in relation to our commitment. There was no requirement to seek additional authority from our Cabinet for this…”
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 19th August 2021, to which the Council responded on 3rd December 2021.
As part of its response, the Council provided minutes of a Council meeting on 7th February 2018, which show that the Definition was adopted.
