The University has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism, excluding all of its examples.
The Definition was adopted on an unknown date in 2021.
The University announced the decision through a statement published on its website on an unknown date in 2021. In the statement, the University confirmed that: “DMU has not incorporated the examples which are outlined by the IHRA as we share the concerns raised among Jewish scholars around potential limitations on freedom of speech and the interaction with academic freedom, particularly around discourse focusing on the state of Israel. However, the university will take the examples into consideration where appropriate to do so. We will continue to consult with our Jewish staff, students and community on this.”
We have sought an update from the University on the date of adoption.
