Minister says more universities are taking onboard IHRA definition despite low numbers

Universities and science minister, and Conservative parliamentary candidate for Kingswood, Chris Skidmore, has praised the University of Bristol for adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance Association’s definition of antisemitism, although take-up remains low across higher education despite his intervention earlier this year.

On 4 December, Skidmore said he was pleased to see the university taking “positive, affirmative action against antisemitism” after he wrote to all universities in May asking them to adopt the IHRA definition, and he claimed that more universities were doing so as a result. “All Jewish students deserve the right to study free from antisemitic slurs and abuse,” he wrote.
