The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that: “…City will recognise the IHRA Working Definition of anti-Semitism on a non-exclusive basis and undertake a piece of work with our Jewish staff and students to identify and combat anti-Semitism. This decision will be reviewed within the next two years, or as necessary in the context of the changing legal and regulatory environment. The institutional position has not changed since then.”
