  • Turning a blind eye to antisemitism: Amnesty and co.

    20 Dec 2018 by Mark Gardner

    Amnesty has, in just over a year, issued two reports on misogyny, racism and social media that make no mention of antisemitism. This, despite CST and our partners, such as the Antisemitism Policy Trust, having extensively evidenced the abuse that Jewish women suffer, especially MPs.  

  • EU Survey: What do British Jews Consider to be Antisemitic?

    20 Dec 2018 by Mark Gardner

    Recent CST blogs have shown the UK and overall European findings from the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) survey, ’Experiences and perceptions of antisemitism - Second survey on discrimination and hate crime against Jews in the EU’, which follows and updates the Agency’s landmark 2012 survey. Both surveys were conducted by London’s Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR). CST is proud of its partnerships with both the Agency and JPR; and to have played its part in helping to plan, conduct and publicise both surveys.

  • Key UK findings of EU antisemitism survey

    14 Dec 2018 by Mark Gardner

    Previously, CST blog carried overall European findings from the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) survey, ’Experiences and perceptions of antisemitism - Second survey on discrimination and hate crime against Jews in the EU’. This survey, conducted by London’s Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR) and Ipsos MORI,  repeats and expands upon the Agency’s landmark 2012 survey on how Jews in eight European countries, including Britain, experience and perceive antisemitism. This new 2018 survey covers 12 European countries (97% of the EU’s Jewish population), including Britain. It is the largest ever study of its kind worldwide and should, like its predecessor, be a key tool in the understanding of modern antisemitism. JPR stress the report’s methodology to ensure that it did not “over-sample Jews with a particular interest in antisemitism” and methodological details are on pp. 73-78 of the report.
