Antisemitism in Local Authorities

London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham

International Definition of Antisemitism

The Council has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism in full, including all of its examples.

The Definition was adopted on 17th October 2018.

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 18th July 2021, to which the Council responded on 4th August 2021.

As part of its response, the Council provided minutes of a Council meeting on 17th October 2018, which show that the Definition was adopted.

To report an incident, please contact us.
