South Ribble Borough Council

International Definition of Antisemitism

The Council has not adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.

The Council has told Campaign Against Antisemitism: “The decision not to adopt the IHRA Definition was agreed at the Leader and Deputy Briefing on 4th February 2020.”

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 4th July 2022, to which the Council responded on 13th July 2022.


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.
