The “Working Definition of Antisemitism” of the International Holocaust Remembrance Association (IHRA) has been adopted by local and national governments, the EU, political parties and – most relevant for BRICUP – universities.  It confuses genuine antisemitism with criticism of Israel, and is being used to ban speakers, prevent meetings on campus, curtail academic freedom and bring disciplinary proceedings against academics for things they have said or written.  BRICUP campaigns for academic freedom and freedom of speech on campus.


BRICUP, jointly with the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Jews for Justice for Palestinians, has a new website on the IHRA definition.

And the Canadian “No IHRA” campaign has a great set of resources here.
