University of Leeds statement: Leeds University Union's Better Union forum (11/03/19)

A University of Leeds spokesperson said: “Every student on the Better Union panel was clear that antisemitism is wholly unacceptable. The disagreement was about the formal definition of anti-Semitism.

“The University is committed to promoting and positively encouraging free debate – including the definition of anti-Semitism – and we are confident that we have a robust and consistent policy on freedom of expression. The University would take firm and decisive action against any members of the University demonstrating antisemitism or other forms of hate crime.”
