This one-day event will be the first of a series of exploratory workshops on how we define and conceive antisemitism and will focus on these issues in the context of institutions and the law.
In the course of the workshop we intend to explore: the changing and contested definitions of antisemitism in European Union institutions; the concept and definition of hate crime in relation to Jews; the relationship of the law on race relations and religious and racial hatred to the Jews; and how Jewish communal organisations and activist groups define and comprehend antisemitism.
