FRA Report: Antisemitism in Europe has become disturbingly normalised
This report outlines the main findings of the second survey on Jewish people’s experiences with hate crime, discrimination and antisemitism in the European Union published by the European Fundamental Right Agency in December 2018. This is the biggest survey of Jewish people ever conducted worldwide. Covering 12 EU Member States, the survey reached almost 16,500 individuals who identify as being Jewish. It follows up on the agency’s first survey, conducted in seven countries in 2012.
The findings make for a sobering read. They underscore that antisemitism remains pervasive across the EU – and has, in many ways, become disturbingly normalised. The important information provided herein can support policymakers across the EU in stepping up their efforts to ensure the safety and dignity of all Jewish people living in the EU.
