“Antisemitism is a serious problem. But without the data, we do not know how serious it is. The lack of data also hinders us to effectively counter antisemitism,” says FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty. “EU countries need to step up their efforts to encourage reporting and improve recording and data collection, as recommended by the EU’s recent Strategy on combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life. With that we will be better able to tackle hatred and prejudice against Jews.”
