UCU Congress motion 70 

EUMC working definition of anti-Semitism

National Executive Committee

  

Congress notes with concern that the so-called “EUMC working definition of antisemitism”, while not adopted by the EU or the UK government and having no official status, is being used by bodies such as the NUS and local student unions in relation to activities on campus.

  

Congress believes that the EUMC definition confuses criticism of Israeli government policy and actions with genuine antisemitism, and is being used to silence debate about Israel and Palestine on campus.

  

Congress resolves:

 

 

1.       that UCU will make no use of the EUMC definition (e.g. in educating members or dealing with internal complaints)

 

 

2.       that UCU will dissociate itself from the EUMC definition in any public discussion on the matter in which UCU is involved

 

 

3.       that UCU will campaign for open debate on campus concerning Israel’s past history and current policy, while continuing to combat all forms of racial or religious discrimination.
