Dear European Parliament,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

A list of all EU Member States that have endorsed or adopted the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism, with clarification, in each case, on whether this adoption included or did not include the IHRA's 11 illustrative examples.

Yours faithfully,

Jamie Weiner

Dear Mr Weiner,

 

Following your application, under Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, for public
access to a list of all Member States that have endorsed or adopted the
IHRA working definition of antisemitism, including a clarification on
whether such adoption included the IHRA's 11 illustrative examples, please
find herewith the European Parliament resolution of 1 June 2017 on
combating anti-Semitism, in particular paragraph 2 thereof:

[1]https://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/doc....

 

In this regard, Parliament informs you that it does not hold any other
documents relevant to your application within the meaning of Article 2(3)
of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 and is therefore not in a position to
grant public access to such documents.

 

On this basis, Parliament considers your application as handled and the
file closed. Should you have a new request for specific Parliament
documents, please do not hesitate to come back to us.

 

Kind regards,

Many thanks for your response.

However, the European Parliament resolution of 1 June 2017 to which you refer me does not contain 'a list of all Member States that have endorsed or adopted the IHRA working definition of antisemitism, including a clarification on whether such adoption included the IHRA's 11 illustrative examples'.

Presumably the European Parliament is aware which of its Member States have adopted the IHRA working definition, and whether these adoptions did or did not extend to the illustrative examples, and this is the information I am seeking.

Yours sincerely,

Jamie Weiner

Dear Mr Weiner,

 

As indicated in our initial response, Parliament does not hold any such
documents.

 

In this regard, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that it
is not the European Parliament but rather the Council that consists of
government representatives of each Member State. This, however, does not
imply that the Parliament is suggesting that the Council indeed holds such
documents since it would be for the Council to make that determination.

 

Kind regards,
