Antisemitism in Local Authorities

Liverpool City Region Combined Authority

International Definition of Antisemitism

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

The Definition was adopted on 19th October 2018.

The Authority has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that it does apply the Definition in disciplinary matters.

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 20th August 2021, to which the Authority responded on 13th September 2021.

As part of its response, the Authority provided minutes of an Authority meeting on 19th October 2018, which show that the Definition was adopted.


No incidents relating to the Authority’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.
