JPR presents at European Parliament

JPR Executive Director, Dr Jonathan Boyd, gave a major presentation at the European Parliament in Brussels today, sharing his insights from two recent studies of antisemitism in Europe.

The presentation formed a central part of 'The Fight against Antisemitism' conference, an event convened by Viorica Dăncilă, the Prime Minister of Romania, the country which currently holds the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Alongside Mrs Dăncilă, speakers included First Vice-President of the European Commission, Frans Timmermans, Chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel, Isaac Herzog, H.E. Ambassador of Israel to the EU and NATO, Aharon Leshno-Yaar, General Secretary of the World Jewish Restitution Organisation, Colette Avital, and Special Envoy for Post-Holocaust Affairs in the United Kingdom, the Rt. Hon. Lord Eric Pickles.

Jonathan Boyd's presentation drew on the findings of the recent European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) survey of Jewish people's perceptions and experiences of antisemitism in 13 EU Member States - a study undertaken for the EU by JPR working in partnership with Ipsos - as well as the Special Eurobarometer study on perceptions of antisemitism undertaken by the European Commission.

In his remarks, Boyd highlighted the high proportions of Jews who see antisemitism as a growing problem in their countries, the need to tackle antisemitism at its root as well as addressing the security needs of Jewish communities, the importance of educating about Jewish life and history as well as about the Holocaust, and the necessity to directly address the challenges of antisemitism online.
