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