In April 2004, the UK House of Commons debated the apparent rise of antisemitic incidents and the prevailing antisemitic climate in Britain. Responding on behalf of the Government Home Office, Minister Fiona Mactaggart MP reported that 'together with the Institute for Jewish Policy Research, the Metropolitan Police is conducting research into such incidents to get a more accurate feel for their nature and to develop a more effective response to them'. We publish online here the findings of that joint research project with a view to understanding more clearly the dynamics of antisemitic incidents recorded by the police in London.
