The University has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism in full, including all of its examples. The University simultaneously adopted the Jerusalem Declaration on Antisemitism, which is a wrecking document designed to undermine the International Definition of Antisemitism. Accordingly, an institution that adopts the Jerusalem Declaration cannot be said to have adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.
The Definition was adopted on 25th June 2021.
The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism: “At the meeting of Friday 25th June 2021, Council… approved adoption of the IHRA definition of antisemitism, [sic]. They also approved usage of the Jerusalem Declaration on Antisemitism to support with interpretation after feedback from staff, students, Senate and wider legal advice.”
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 14th July 2020. On 30th December 2020, the University responded. On 5th July 2021, the University updated its response.
Additionally, the University published a statement on its website on 30th June 2021.
