Les actes de terrorisme représentent aujourd’hui une menace de taille pour la vie et la sécurité des personnes et un défi majeur pour les États sur le plan de la sécurité. Dans le même temps, les lois et politiques adoptées pour lutter contre le terrorisme peuvent donner lieu, directement ou indirectement, à de graves limitations des libertés et droits fondamentaux. Tel est le constat d’un nouveau rapport de l’Agence des droits fondamentaux de l’Union européenne (FRA). Ce rapport, qui se fonde sur l’analyse d’experts, contient des propositions sur la manière dont la lutte contre le terrorisme peut tirer parti d’une plus grande clarté juridique, d’orientations pratiques et de garanties renforcées.

Des incidents de haine envers les Juifs sont apparus tout au long de la pandémie de coronavirus. Même si le nombre d’incidents antisémites a diminué dans certains pays, le problème principal reste le même dans toute l’Europe : la plupart des incidents ne sont toujours pas signalés. Chaque pays collecte les données différemment et certains n’en collectent aucune. Cette situation continue d’entraver les efforts visant à lutter efficacement contre l’antisémitisme en Europe, comme en atteste la dernière vue d’ensemble annuelle des incidents antisémites produite par l'Agence des droits fondamentaux de l’Union européenne (FRA).
