Academics At UK University Reject IHRA Anti-Semitism Definition

Academics at a major British university last week voted to reverse their institution’s adoption of the misleading anti-Semitism definition promoted by Israel and its lobby. A report by University College London’s academic board states that the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s “working definition” of anti-Semitism “is not fit for purpose within a university setting and has no legal basis for enforcement.” The board voted to endorse the report last week. It will now be up to university management to decide whether the vote will be implemented. The university’s branch of the University and College Union is campaigning against the definition. The report was more than a year in the making.
