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 16th June 2017.
As part of its response, the Council provided minutes of a Council meeting on 16th June 2017, which show that the Definition was adopted.
There is no reference to the examples in the minutes 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.
The Council told Campaign Against Antisemitism: “The illustrative examples were not included in the motion. It is unclear if they were inadvertently omitted or specifically excluded as the author of the motion is no longer with the and we are unable to check this point.”
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 26th July 2021, to which the Council responded on 9th August 2021.
