The University has not adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 14th July 2020. On 4th August 2020, the University responded.
It appears a paper dated 27th October 2020 was submitted to the University’s Academic Board for views on adoption of the Definition prior to consideration by the University’s Board of Governors. The University told Campaign Against Antisemitism that: [it] “…has decided to establish a commission to explore the issues raised by the definition more fully. Principally this will entail the specific and growing threat of antisemitism within our society, the growth and risks associated with other forms of racism and faith intolerance, and the appropriate response to these challenges for the University of Brighton as a modern anti-racist University. The work of the commission will be completed no later than six months from its launch in early 2021…”.
The University responded on 4th August 2020, with an update on 13th January 2021.
