Three more UK universities adopt IHRA definition of antisemitism

Three more UK universities have agreed to adopt the IHRA working definition of antisemitism following pressures from Jewish student groups and the UK government’s independent adviser Lord John Mann.

Lancaster University, Manchester Metropolitan, and Buckinghamshire New University all confirmed that they have accepted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition over the past few days.

The University of Cambridge has been among those to subsequently confirm they have adopted IHRA.
