Antisemitism in Local Authorities

West Midlands 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 24th July 2020.

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 21st September 2021.

As part of its response, the Authority provided a statement from the Board meeting on 24th July 2020, which shows 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.
