The EU and Israel agreed to continue their close cooperation in combating Antisemitism, in particular through new educational initiatives towards minority communities and population at large, and countering dangerous cyberhate, at the 10th EU-Israel Seminar on Combating Racism, Xenophobia and Antisemitism held in Jerusalem and the north of Israel on 13 – 14 December 2016.

The event brought together representatives from the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, EU institutions, the Fundamental Rights Agency, Members of Knesset, and experts from the Israel Ministry of Education, research institutions, NGOs and technology companies.
We need to join forces to combat Antisemitism and all other forms of racism in a holistic way, with solid policies, law enforcement on hate crimes, tackling illegal online hatred as well as with preventive measures such as education and coalition building. Our common values are under attack and we need to fight for them together,” said Katharina von Schnurbein, European Commission Coordinator on Combating Antisemitism.
