Terrorismus stellt eine ernsthafte Bedrohung für das Leben und die Sicherheit der Bevölkerung dar und gefährdet die staatliche Sicherheit. Gleichzeitig können Gesetze und politische Maßnahmen zur Terrorismusbekämpfung direkt oder indirekt schwerwiegende Einschränkungen der Grundrechte und -freiheiten mit sich bringen, wie ein neuer Bericht der Agentur der Europäischen Union für Grundrechte (FRA) zeigt. Der Bericht beruht auf Facherkenntissen und enthält Vorschläge, wie die Terrorismusbekämpfung durch größere rechtliche Klarheit, praktische Leitlinien und stärkere Sicherheitsvorkehrungen verbessert werden könnte.

Während der gesamten Coronavirus-Pandemie kam es zu hassmotivierten antijüdischen Vorfällen. Obwohl in einigen Ländern die Zahl der antisemitischen Vorfälle zurückgegangen ist, besteht das Hauptproblem in ganz Europa weiterhin darin, dass die meisten Vorfälle nicht gemeldet werden. Jedes Land erhebt Daten auf unterschiedliche Weise, während einige überhaupt keine Daten erheben. Laut dem jüngsten jährlichen Überblick der Agentur der Europäischen Union für Grundrechte (FRA) über antisemitische Vorfälle behindert dies nach wie vor die Bemühungen, den Antisemitismus in Europa wirksam zu bekämpfen.
