JPR wins major EU research tender

JPR wins major EU research tender

The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has once again contracted JPR and international research agency, Ipsos, to conduct a major new survey, following a competitive tender process.

This survey investigating discrimination and hate crime against Jews living in the European Union will start in 2018.

This time it will be more extensive than the first survey conducting in 2012; Jews living in 13 EU Member States will be invited to take part from mid-2018 with results expected later that year. The countries covered will be Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

The 2012 survey was the largest ever study of European Jews covering nine EU Member States. Since the results were published, it has had a significant policy impact across Europe, most notably informing the conclusions of the EU’s Justice and Home Affairs Council on combating hate crime in the EU, and the decision to appoint the European’s Commission’s first antisemitism coordinator to help combat antisemitism across Europe.

As Dr Jonathan Boyd, JPR’s Executive Director, explained: “The new FRA survey offers Jews across Europe a rare opportunity to share their perceptions and experiences of antisemitism with key politicians and policy makers both in their home countries and across the European Union, European Commission and European Parliament. Few surveys have such a direct tie in with the formation of new policy, so one clear way Jews can do something to address any concerns they may have about antisemitism is to participate in this study.”
