Durham University is a multi-cultural, international community that is committed to ensuring that all its members can participate fully in its rich academic and social life.
Sadly, as with other universities in the UK, there are sometimes incidents in which individuals experience exclusion, intimidation or abuse because they are Jewish. Such experiences of Anti-Semitism are unacceptable.
The University and Students’ Union have adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Definition of Anti-Semitism* and committed to taking effective action to combat Anti-Semitism on campus.
In this short guide produced by Durham University’s Jewish Society with the University’s Chaplaincy Network, sources of support for students are identified as well as procedures for reporting Anti-Semitic incidents.
*This webpage includes examples of Anti-Semitism, e.g. calling for the killing or harming of Jews, Holocaust denial, and holding Jews collectively responsible for the actions of the state of Israel.
