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 23rd January 2020.
As part of its response, the Council provided minutes of a Council meeting on 23rd January 2020, which show that the Definition was adopted.
There is no reference to the examples in the minutes or accompanying report and therefore we cannot assess with certainty whether the Definition has been adopted in full.
The Council has told Campaign Against Antisemitism: “The examples were not specifically included in the agreed motion.”
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.
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 5th August 2021, to which the Council responded on 31st August 2021.
