A major survey measuring hate crime and discrimination against Jews across Europe opened on 25 January, led by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA).

“Antisemitism continues to be a blight on Europe despite repeated efforts to put an end to long-held prejudices,” says FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty. “FRA continues its steadfast support to the EU’s commitment to safeguard Jewish life across Europe. Once again, our survey gives Jews in Europe the opportunity to voice their concerns so that policymakers get the insights they need to effectively tackle antisemitism once and for all.”

The survey will ask Jews in 13 European countries about their perceptions and experiences of antisemitism, and of being Jewish where they live. The countries covered are Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Spain and Sweden.

The survey is open to those who self-identify as Jewish, are at least 16 years old and currently live in the survey countries. The survey runs from 25 January and is accessible at

FRA conducted two similar surveys in 2012 and 2018. Each provided detailed insights into contemporary antisemitism in the EU.

The findings fed public policy by the EU, Member States, and civil society organizations working to tackle and end antisemitism. Data collected in 2018, for example, helped shape the EU’s Strategy on Combating Antisemitism and Fostering Jewish Life (2021-2030).

Results of this third survey will come out in late 2023.

The confidential survey is being conducted by Kantar Public, based in Brussels, in consultation with the European Union for Progressive Judaism Foundation.
