The University has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism in full, including all of its examples.
The Definition was adopted on 18th February 2020.
It is unclear from the University’s response to Campaign Against Antisemitism whether it applies the Definition in disciplinary matters, confirming that: “The University has two policies under which it can investigate allegations of antisemitism for disciplinary purposes. The Respect at Work Policy covers the workplace whilst the Respect at Study Policy covers student members of the University. Antisemitism would fall under the definitions of discrimination, bullying and harassment set out within those policies.”
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 8th July 2020. On 27th October 2020, the University responded.
As part of its response, the University provided minutes of a meeting on 18th February 2020, which show that the Definition was adopted. Additionally, the University published a statement on its website on26th November 2020.
