German Parliamentary Commission

German Parliamentary Commission

The members of a German parliamentary expert commission met with the JPR team this week for advice on how best to research contemporary antisemitism in Europe.

The commission, chaired by Patrick Siegele, the Director of the Anne Frank Zentrum, has been set up to advise the German Parliament on how to combat antisemitism in Germany today, and was visiting Britain to learn from research and policy initiatives established by research institutes, Jewish communal bodies and goverment departments in the UK. Its meeting with the JPR team focused on methodological and analytical challenges in antisemitism research, and the importance of examining different types of data - on attitudes towards Jews, attitudes among Jews and incident counts - with due care and attention. JPR published a landmark report on this topic in 2015 (which can be downloaded here), and has shared its findings widely over the past year in Britain and acreoss Europe.

Other members of the parliamentary commission include Marina Chernivsky, of the Zentrale Wohlfahrtsstelle der Juden in Deutschland, Professor Dr. Beate Küpper, from the Hochschule Niederrhein, and Dr. Christina Herkommer, who is based at the Anne Frank Zentrum in Berlin, and serves as research associate for the commission.
