FRA has launched an online survey in nine EU Member States to capture Jewish people's experiences and perceptions of antisemitism and help combat antisemitism. The survey is managed by Ipsos MORI and Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR) for FRA. It asks respondents to describe antisemitic incidents which they have been subjected to, including incidents of hate crime, discrimination, harassment or forms of antisemitism which affect the community as a whole, such as vandalism or antisemitic comments on the internet.
The survey will be open until 30 September. Respondents must consider themselves Jewish (based on e.g. religion, culture, upbringing, ethnicity, parentage), be 16 or older, and currently live in one of the nine survey countries: Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Romania, Sweden or the United Kingdom.
To access the survey, please go to www.ipsos-mori.com/FRAsurvey.
The data and results of the survey in 2013-2014 will allow European institutions and Member States to formulate informed policy and legal responses to combat antisemitism. More information about the FRA antisemitism survey, its aims, content and the choice of countries, is available in the project factsheet (in English, French and German) at http://fra.europa.eu/fraWebsite/research/publications/publications_per_year/2012/pub-factsheet-antisemitism-survey_en.htm.
