FRA update on the situation of antisemitism in the EU
The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) presented its eighth update on the situation of antisemitism in the EU: Antisemitism - Summary overview of the situation in the European Union 2001–2011
The update assembles statistical data covering the period 1 January 2001–31 December 2011 on antisemitic incidents collected by supranational, governmental and non-governmental sources in the EU. Notable antisemitic incidents that occurred in 2011 are highlighted throughout the report to reveal the reality behind the figures. The update shows that antisemitism remains a problem across the EU for society as a whole, and for Jewish populations in particular. It is therefore imperative that policy makers and civil society actors at all levels remain vigilant and pursue their efforts in combating antisemitism.
The FRA will present its latest update on the situation of antisemitism at the State of Israel and the European Commission’s 6th Seminar on racism, xenophobia and antisemitism. The Seminar is a joint annual meeting to discuss the situation in the EU and in Israel.
