College adopts IHRA’s working definition of anti-semitism

Update to the College’s Equality and Diversity Policies – including the formal adoption of the IHRA’s working definition of anti-semitism


The College values academic freedom and is committed to promoting and positively encouraging free debate, enquiry and, indeed, protest.  This means that it tolerates a wide range of views, political as well as academic, even when they are unpopular, controversial or provocative.  The College will however, always take firm and decisive action against anyone demonstrating any form of hate crime, including antisemitism, Islamophobia.


As of July 2021, The College Corporation agreed to formally adopt the IHRA’s working definition of anti-semitism.


The working definition can be found here.
