The University has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism but it is unclear if the adoption included all of its examples.
The Definition appears to have been adopted on 7th May 2020. However, the examples of the Definition seem to have been omitted by the University in further guidance documents produced by the University.
The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that: “The University has adopted the IHRA definition and it takes into consideration all of the examples when dealing with individual harassment complaints. However, the examples are not yet included in the Dignity and Respect Guidance. We are considering adding the examples as an appendix. The appendix will include examples of antisemitism and other behaviours that the University deems contrary to its Dignity and Respect Guidance.”
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 8th July 2020. On 5th August 2020, the University responded.
As part of its response, the University provided draft minutes of a meeting of its Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee (EDIC) on 7th May 2020, which show that the Definition was adopted, although the examples were not referred to.
