The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that it has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism in full, including all the examples but it has not provided evidence to support its claim.
The University said that the Definition was adopted on 12th October 2020.
The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that: “Antisemitism is unacceptable and abhorrent and it will be met with very firm sanctions within our student and staff community. In recognition of this, and upholding the right of freedom of speech and academic freedom in our statutes, we have recognised the IHRA definition and agreed, by way of policy, that it will be taken into account by and disciplinary tribunal in considering a complaint or allegation of antisemitism. ”
This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 16th July 2020. On 28th October 2020, the University responded.
