Antisemitism in Local Authorities

London Borough of Islington

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 29th June 2017.

The Council has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that: “In adopting the definition through the motion at Full Council, the Council was adopting the definition it in its entirety, including all examples listed in the longer-form version of the definition.”

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 21st July 2021, to which the Council responded on 16th August 2021.

As part of its response, the Council provided minutes of a Council meeting on 29th June 2017, which show that the Definition was adopted.


No incidents relating to the Council’s officials or councillors have been reported to us, however we recognise that antisemitism is chronically underreported and it is possible that there are incidents that have not been reported. To report an incident, please contact us.
