In association with the Antisemitism Policy Trust and CST, Seth Stephens-Davidowitz has produced an eye-opening short study, Hidden Hate: What Google searches tell us about antisemitism today, which was released earlier this month. The report looked at what people search for when using Google, as well as examined the far right, often antisemitic, forum Stormfront, based in the USA.

What can the internet tell us about antisemitism in the United Kingdom? Today , CST and the Antisemitism Policy Trust publish a new report, called Hidden Hate: What Google searches tell us about antisemitism today, that uses Google search data from 2004 to 2018 to show what people in the UK are searching for in relation to Jews, Zionism and the Holocaust, and what this tells us about antisemitic attitudes in Britain today. The report is authored by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, who wrote the acclaimed 2017 book Everybody Lies: What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are. The report also uses data from the complete archive of the far right website Stormfront, which has been used as a discussion board by neo-Nazis across the world for over 20 years.

This year, CST will be supporting National Hate Crime Awareness Week, organised by 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign alongside Stop Hate UK. The main aim of 17-24-30 is to actively remember the victims of hate crime and to support those whose lives have been permanently changed due to acts of hate. The prevailing message of the week is that hate crime is not acceptable in our communities and that we will work together to tackle hate crime wherever it is found. National Hate Crime Awareness Week was founded in 2009 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the London Nail bomb attacks in Brixton.
