EU presents first-ever Strategy on combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life

October 6, 2021

On 5 October, the European Commission presented its first ever EU Strategy on combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life.

The 2021-2030 Strategy sets out a series of measures articulated around three pillars: to prevent all forms of antisemitism; to protect and foster Jewish life; and to promote research, education and Holocaust remembrance. The Strategy proposes measures to step up cooperation with online companies to curb antisemitism online, better protect public spaces and places of worship, set up a European research hub on contemporary antisemitism and create a network of sites where the Holocaust happened. These measures will be reinforced by the EU’s international efforts to lead the global fight against antisemitism, which, according the Commission, is “worryingly on the rise, in Europe and beyond”.  

The EU will use all available tools to call on partner countries to combat antisemitism in the EU neighbourhood and beyond, including through cooperation with international organisations.
