To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-09667 by Angela Constance on 26 June 2017, whether it will provide the information that was requested regarding which organisations asked it to adopt the International Holocaust Memorial Trust's working definition of anti-Semitism, and what issues it identified with the previous definition.

Answered by Angela Constance (12/07/2017):

Scottish Government officials met with the Scottish Council for Jewish Communities and the Community Security Trust to discuss the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition of anti-Semitism, which is based on the definition published by the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) in 2005.

Adopting this definition will help to inform our work in this area and as I confirmed in my previous answer, the Scottish Government will continue to work with representatives to support the needs of the Jewish communities to build strength and eliminate fear in Scotland.
