The Symposium will consider the findings of the major survey into antisemitism in Europe carried out by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA).
The survey - the first of its kind - offers new insights into how Jews experience and perceive antisemitism across nine European Union Member States: Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Romania, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
This symposium reviews the report’s findings and its implications for policy. It also introduces new UK-specific findings into the debate based on the Institute for Jewish Policy Research’s continuing analysis of the data.
The Rt Hon Hilary Benn MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government will open the symposium, which is organised in two panels.
Session 1: The FRA report
Session 2: Perspectives
