Inter-parliamentary Coalition for Combating Antisemitism visits FRA

The Steering Committee and director of the Inter-parliamentary Coalition for Combating Antisemitism (ICCA) met FRA on 14 October to be briefed about the agency’s survey of Jewish people’s experiences and perceptions of hate crime, discrimination and antisemitism.

The ICCA is an international coalition of members from national parliaments around the world and the European Parliament who work together to combat antisemitism. The Steering Committee welcomed FRA’s survey and saw its results as being highly relevant to national and European policy debates on antisemitism. The members expressed interest in inviting FRA to present the survey results to the Civil Liberties Committee of the European Parliament and national parliaments, in order to ensure political follow-up. On 26 November, FRA will take part in a symposium on antisemitism, which is co-hosted by the ICCA, together with the European Parliament Informal Working Group on Antisemitism, and the European Jewish Congress and B’nai B’rith International.
