The survey will provide EU institutions and Member States comparable data, for the first time, on experiences and perceptions of antisemitism, hate-motivated crime and discrimination among Jewish populations in nine EU Member States. The results will enable the concerned EU Member States to assess the prevalence of antisemitism in their country, and whether existing policies to combat antisemitism are adequate.
Jewish communities in the EU continue to be affected by antisemitism. Individuals may find themselves subject to discrimination in their daily lives. Hate crime against Jewish people affects not only the victims, but also their families and communities in the form of worry, insecurity and fear. Despite persisting concerns, existing data on the nature, extent and effects of discrimination and hate crime against Jews in EU Member States are patchy and not comparable, which hinders the development of effective policy measures to combat it.
The survey was developed in consultation with the European Commission, national policy makers, survey experts, national and international Jewish community representatives and international organisations. It is an online survey conducted in two stages in nine countries – Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Romania, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Two different approaches to contact respondents are used – based on respondent driven sampling and an open survey. The project will also pilot new data collection tools, thereby contributing to the development of survey research methods.
The results of the survey will be published in 2013-2014.
