Antisemitism in Local Authorities

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council

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 11th September 2019.

The Council 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 16th August 2021, to which the Council responded on 24th August 2021. On 17th May 2022, the Council updated its response.

As part of its response, the Council provided minutes of a Council meeting on 11th September 2019, which show that the Definition was adopted. Additionally, the Council published its Equality Definitions on its website on 9th September 2021.
