How to fight antisemitism, racism and hatred in the EU 

MEPs will assess the EU’s response to rising antisemitism, racism and hatred in the EU, in a plenary debate on Tuesday with Council and Commission representatives.

Many MEPs are particularly worried about the increase in antisemitic attacks in some EU member states, such as the one by a right-wing extremist on a synagogue in Halle (Germany) in October 2019, in which two people were killed. Others point to the growing number of hate crimes, both online and offline, on grounds of race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.
