A new report from the Combat Antisemitism Movement reveals the extent to which the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism continues its growing adoption across the globe.
This year has seen two countries—Latvia and Croatia—embrace the definition, as well as 33 government bodies, seven education organizations, one private company and 35 other groups. An especially high number of public organizations in Poland—28—have adopted the IHRA language.
Among schools now on board are the University of Melbourne in Australia, the University of Split in Croatia, Boston University’s student government and the Catholic University of Santa María la Antigua in Panama.
Now the number of countries that have adopted the IHRA definition has reached 41. With Arkansas and North Dakota joining, the count of U.S. states is at 32. In addition, bodies in Italy, Canada, Latin America and Argentina have accepted the definition, as have cities such as Dallas; Cincinnati; Boca Raton, Fla.; and South Bend, Ind.
