Australia - NSW adopts IHRA definition

New South Wales this week became the first state or territory in Australia to officially adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism.

Premier Dominic Perrottet made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon, following the federal government’s adoption of the definition in October.

“Today I’m proud to announce that the NSW Government will join our federal colleagues in embracing the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance working definition of antisemitism,” Perrottet said.

“To fight something, you need to be able to identify it, to be able to describe it, to name it. A definition is an essential tool.

“It’s a tool which empowers all those who fight this fight.”
