“Antisemitism remains a serious problem in our societies. The Coronavirus pandemic and Russia’s aggression against Ukraine further fuelled such hate,” says FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty. “Without proper data we cannot hope to be effective in countering longstanding antisemitic incidents. It is high time that EU countries step up their efforts to encourage reporting and improve recording, so we can better tackle hatred and prejudice against Jews.”
FRA’s latest annual overview highlights:
FRA’s overview looks at data from international, governmental and non-governmental sources across all EU countries, as well as Albania, North Macedonia and Serbia. It compiles data from 1 January 2011 until 31 December 2021.
FRA continues to work on antisemitism. In 2023, the Agency will carry out its third survey on discrimination and hate crime against Jews. Furthermore, it will publish the findings of its project on online harassment, hate speech and incitement to violence against women and ethnic minorities. This includes antisemitic online content.
