The Pears Institute is an internationally recognised centre for innovative research on antisemitism and racism and contributes to contemporary discussion and policy formation on antisemitism, intolerance and racial inequality.
We engage in issues in a way that is academically rigorous and intellectually inclusive. There are three areas in which we are committed to making a significant contribution: promoting interdisciplinary study, connecting antisemitism with the study of racism more broadly and interrogating antisemitism.

The Institute actively collaborates with research centres and others in the UK, Europe, Israel and the United States.

Christian and Jewish Women in Britain, 1880-1940: Living with Difference
This book offers an entirely new contribution to the history of multiculturalism in Britain, 1880-1940. It shows how friendship and co-operation between Christian and Jewish women changed lives and, as the Second World War approached, actually saved them. A great variety of sources are thoughtfully interrogated, and concluding remarks address some of the social concerns of the present century.
