Findings of the FES study: "Intolerance, Prejudice and Discrimination – A European Report", investigating causes of racism and Anti-Semitism in Europe will be discussed.
The assault on a Jewish school in Toulouse in March of this year has put Europe, Israel and the world into a state of shock. It has also stimulated a discussion on Anti-Semitism in today's Europe and raised further questions as to how far Anti-Semitism and Racism have become mainstream in European societies again.
In the FES Study "Intolerance, Prejudice and Discrimination – A European Report" the extent, determinants and possible causes of racism and Anti-Semitism were investigated in eight European countries. The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung would like to present and discuss the findings of the study in the present event.
The keynote Speech will be delivered by Matthias Platzeck, Minister-President of the Federal State of Brandenburg, Germany.
