This event will focus on antisemitism, addressing its history, its manifestation, and what we can do to prevent it.
Following a flare-up in antisemitic violence and behaviour in May 2021, it is critical to assess what this term means, where antisemitism originates from, and the steps being taken by government and organisations to tackle this concerning development.
