Antisemitism in Universities

Middlesex University

International Definition of Antisemitism

University

The University does not appear to have adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 9th July 2020. As of 14th December 2020 the University has not responded.

Students’ Union

When asked on 5th August 2020, Middlesex University Students’ Union failed to confirm whether it has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.

Incidents

The following are recent incidents that have been reported to us. There may be additional incidents that have not yet been reported to us. To report an incident, please contact us.

Richard Falk, the discredited and disgraced fringe antisemitic conspiracy theorist and the former UN envoy, was prevented from holding an event at Middlesex University. The University had insisted the event would take place, but following intervention by Campaign Against Antisemitism, the University decided to cancel the event.

Jewish life on campus

The incidence of antisemitism on a university campus and how the university and its students’ union address antisemitism are matters of serious concern. At the same time, they do not represent the totality of Jewish life on any campus. For further information about Jewish life on campus, please contact the local Jewish Society or Jewish chaplain.

No student should have to endure antisemitism. Campaign Against Antisemitism provides specialist help to students who have experienced antisemitism, including free legal representation. For assistance with antisemitism on campus, please contact us.
