The International Remembrance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism

The Scottish Conservatives call on all higher education institutions to accept the IHRA working definition of anti-Semitism, which is a tool to help front-line services better understand and recognise instances of anti-Semitism. I believe this would send a clear message that anti-Semitic behaviour will not be tolerated and will be taken seriously by higher education providers.
In March 2021, Jackson Carlaw MSP raised the issue with the SNP Government a formal written question: Written question and answer: S5W-35740. So, it is concerning to note that, so far, only the University of Glasgow, University of Edinburgh, Glasgow Caledonian University, and Abertay University have formally
adopted this definition.
All universities and higher education institutions have a responsibility to provide a safe and inclusive environment and have a responsibility to ensure students do not face discrimination, harassment, abuse or violence, including online. Universities are expected to have robust policies and procedures in place to comply with the law, and to investigate and swiftly address any hate crime and anti-Semitic incidents that are reported.
