New antisemitism survey launched

New antisemitism survey launched

8 November saw the launch of the results of the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) survey of Jewish perceptions and experiences of antisemitism in Europe, conducted by JPR and Ipsos MORI.

The JPR-Ipsos MORI team won the right to conduct the survey in a competitive tender process, and surveyed close to 6,000 Jews in nine EU Member States: Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Romania, Sweden and the the UK. The survey questionnaire was made available to the different Jewish populations in a choice of eleven languages, and the dataset almost certainly constitutes the largest one ever gathered on Jews in Europe.

Issues raised in the research include Jews' experiences of harassment, discrimination, vandalism and violence, the reporting of incidents, the extent to which they feel safe and secure, and their awareness of their rights under the law. The study very much fits into the context of the FRA's wider work examining these issues among different minority groups in Europe. The data will be used to inform policy debate at the European, national and local community levels, and will form a central part of the FRA's Fundamental Rights Conference on combating hate crime in the EU, which will take place in Vilnius on 12 and 13 November.
