Cracking down on Anti-Semitism
Ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day tomorrow, the government has today announced new measures to acknowledge and eradicate antisemitic abuse on university campuses in the England to protect Jewish students and staff.
- Antisemitism has no place in our society or any of our world leading universities, so we must work hard to ensure that no staff member or student is subjected to such abhorrent abuse.
- That is why the government is committing to working hand-in-hand with education providers, vice chancellors and Jewish groups to improve data reporting, build a better picture of the issue and improve support for Jewish students to ensure universities have the right tools to tackle this issue.
- Education is a vaccine against antisemitism – we must all work together to make it crystal clear that antisemitism, like all forms of racism, will never be tolerated in our classrooms or campuses and we will continue to work to protect people from facing this abuse.
