Antisemitism in Universities



Bangor University


International Definition of Antisemitism

University

The University has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism. It was not clear whether the examples were adopted.

The Definition was adopted on 13th October 2020.

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 7th July 2020. The University responded on 10th August 2020, and updated its response on 11th March 2021.

As part of its response, the University provided minutes of a meeting of its Executive on 13th October 2020, which show that the Definition was adopted. We have sought clarification from the University on adoption of the examples.

Students’ Union

When asked on 20th July 2020, Bangor University Students’ Union failed to confirm whether it has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.

Incidents

No incidents 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.


Jewish life on campus

The incidence of antisemitism on a university campus and how the university and its students’ union address antisemitism are matters of serious concern. At the same time, they do not represent the totality of Jewish life on any campus. For further information about Jewish life on campus, please contact the local Jewish Society or Jewish chaplain.

No student should have to endure antisemitism. Campaign Against Antisemitism provides specialist help to students who have experienced antisemitism, including free legal representation. For assistance with antisemitism on campus, please contact us.
