EU Strategy on combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life (2021-2030)
The first-ever EU strategy on combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life (2021-2030) is an ambitious and comprehensive strategy adopted by the European Commission on 5 October 2021. Generations after the end of the Shoah, antisemitism is worryingly on the rise, in Europe and beyond. Antisemitism is incompatible with Europe’s core values. It represents a threat not only to Jewish communities and to Jewish life, but to an open and diverse society, to democracy and the European way of life. The European Union is determined to put an end to it.
The EU will lead the global fight against antisemitism and use all available tools to call on partner countries to actively combat antisemitism, in political and human rights dialogues and in its broader cooperation with partner countries. Actions of the Strategy include: curbing antisemitism online, providing funding for the protection of public spaces and places of worship, setting up of a European research hub on antisemitism and Jewish life, and creation of a network of sites “where Holocaust happened”.
