The University has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism in full, including all of its examples.
The Definition was adopted on 25th February 2020.
The University told Campaign Against Antisemitism that: “…We have agreed we will use the IHRA definition as a reference point when incidents of antisemitism are alleged or identified, as well as in ensuring our Equalities and Inclusion policies, guidance and support are appropriate and effective. This commitment was agreed by our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee and subsequently discussed and agreed by our Senior Management Team.”
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 8th July 2020. On 7th August 2020, the University responded. On 18th June 2021, the University updated its response and again on 15th March 2022.
