FRA antisemitism survey now open

Jewish people in 13 EU Member States can now participate in the Agency's second antisemitism survey. Building on the results from the first survey, it aims to further help the EU and its Member States formulate informed policy and legal responses to combat antisemitism.

The online survey opens on 9 May. It aims to capture Jewish people's experiences and perceptions of antisemitism. It asks respondents to describe antisemitic incidents which they have experienced such as hate crime, discrimination and harassment. It also seeks to cover antisemitic acts which affect the community as a whole such as vandalism or antisemitic comments online.

The survey is interested in the views and experiences of all people who consider themselves Jewish - this could be based on their religion, culture, upbringing, ethnicity, parentage or any other basis. They must be aged 16 years or over, and currently live in one of the 13 survey countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden or the United Kingdom.

The initial survey results will be presented towards the end of 2018.

The survey is being managed by Ipsos and the Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR) for FRA.
