The workshop will bring together about 30-40 experts from across Europe, policy makers and scholars as well as representatives from Jewish and Muslim communities, to discuss concrete ways of increasing the acknowledgment of Antisemitism as a societal problem and to intensify the network between the various actors.

In three panels, we will look at forms Antisemitism is being expressed in Western and Eastern Europe, at the rise of Antisemitism in the middle of society, pushing in from the far-right and the far-left as well as Antisemitism from within the Muslim community. The aim is to assess the effectiveness and usefulness of existing measures in the fight against Antisemitism and develop policy suggestions to feed into relevant Council conclusions during the Austrian EU Presidency in the second half of 2018.

The seminar is open to all EUI community members. As places are limited, please register. If you find you can no longer attend, please do let us know at your earliest convenience.
