Abstract

The central concern of the research project has been to investigate whether immigration from the Middle East and North Africa since 2011 has had an impact on antisemitic attitudes and behaviour in Western Europe.

This short report is a distillation of five separate national reports (on Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and United Kingdom) and presents the findings and recommendations that emerge from the project as a whole.

The report:
• Surveys recent migration from MENA countries to Western Europe
• Presents an overview of the extent and sources of antisemitism in Western Europe today
• Provides an assessment of the attitudes of MENA migrants, as well as of the fears they sometimes elicit
• Examines the validity of claims that the growing number of MENA migrants in Western Europe promotes antisemitism
• Makes recommendations for action by governments and civil society organizations and highlights areas in which we need more research to extend our knowledge and understanding.
