The University of Edinburgh adopts the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) working definition on antisemitism in line with the UK government and recommendations from the United Nations. The University also adopts the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims’ definition of Islamophobia in line with UK governmental bodies. 
Please note that the University applies these definitions in a manner which is consistent with our legally binding commitments to freedom of speech and to the rights of all students and staff to discuss difficult and sensitive topics, provided that this right is exercised responsibly, within the law, and with respect for others who have differing views. 
By adopting these definitions, the University demonstrates its strong commitment to tackling discrimination and various forms of racism.
