Breaking the Cycle of Violence Countering Antisemitism and Extremism in France

To mark the one-year anniversary of the tragic attacks on Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket in Paris, Human Rights First has released a major new report detailing the rise of antisemitism and extremism in France and how the United States can work with its key ally to combat resulting violence and hate crime.

The report, “Breaking the Cycle of Violence: Countering Antisemitism and Extremism in France,” is based on months of research and analysis on antisemitism and extremism in France. It examines how the rise of the far right and Islamic extremism are converging in a vicious cycle to fuel intolerance and violence. The report focuses on ways that U.S. government leaders can work with their French counterparts to prevent future attacks, promote greater tolerance and inclusiveness, and chart a path forward that upholds our shared commitment to human rights as an integral part of national security.
