Antisemitism in contemporary Great Britain: A study of attitudes towards Jews and Israel

September 20, 2017

This report is based on the largest and most detailed survey of attitudes towards Jews and Israel ever conducted in Great Britain. It harnesses a dataset containing 5,466 observations to produce insights of direct relevance for Jewish communal discourse and national political debates on antisemitism. The analysis that underpins it is unprecedented in its depth and the amount of detail it provides about the multiple ways in which uneasiness, negativity and hatred towards Jews express themselves. The strength of analysis offered in this report owes a great deal to the size of the dataset and the detail that it provides, as well as to our determination to let real and very specific concerns and questions about antisemitism inform the line of inquiry. How much antisemitism really exists? Are antisemitism and anti-Israel attitudes related, as some think, or are they completely independent of each other, as others maintain? In what parts of society is antisemitism located and how do political and religious groups differ in that respect?
