Antisemitism in Local Authorities

Tendring District Council

International Definition of Antisemitism

The Council appears to have adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.

We have searched the Council’s website and the public domain. A report and decision details of the Council meeting on 3rd April 2020 confirm the International Definition of Antisemitism was adopted.

There is no reference to the examples in the decision details, accompanying report and therefore we cannot assess with certainty whether the Definition has been adopted in full.

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.


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.
