The University has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism in full, including all of its examples.
The Definition was adopted on 16th July 2021.
The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that: “… Leeds Beckett University has not used the term ‘adopt’ in respect of the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism. As stated on our website, the university does take note of the IHRA definition of hatred, adopted by government, in its anti-racism statement… the statement includes specific reference to Jewish people as one of our ethnic minority communities”.
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 9th July 2020. On 4th August 2020, the University responded. On 1st April 2022, the University updated its response.
Additionally, the University published a statement on its website on an unknown date in 2021.
