Antisemitism is one of the most alarming examples of how prejudice can persist for centuries. Antisemitism continues to be a reality and a common challenge in Europe, including V4 countries, hindering Jewish people from enjoying their rights to human dignity and freedom of belief.
The Action and Protection Foundation has recently launched a knowledge-transfer project with the participation of Hungarian, Polish and Slovakian Jewish organisations. The main goal of the Single Incident Monitoring System For Fostering Security of Jewish Communities project is to create a common Antisemitism monitoring, research and analysis system for the Visegrad countries, which can provide a more realistic alternative to the prevailing European Antisemitism approach.
With this project, we also would like to strengthen the cooperation and partnership between the V4 countries in their activities encountering Antisemitism.
The following activities shall be implemented in the scope of the project:
• One-day conference on Security Challenges of Jewish Communities in Brussels (June 2018)
• Producing a Best Practice Handbook for Jewish advocacy organisations (and other minority stakeholders)
• One-day knowledge transfer training in Budapest (7 November 2018)
• One-day monitoring training in Bratislava and Warsaw (November-December 2018)
