Implementation of the all-Party Parliamentary Report Into Antisemitism Feedback and Responses
Following a significant increase in antisemitic incidents during the Israel-Gaza war of July and August 2014, a group of cross-party MPs decided to examine evidence on the nature of antisemitism in the UK, with specific reference to the Middle East conflict and to consider measures to confront it.
They did so, in light of the previous all-party inquiry into antisemitism of 2006 which over the previous decade had set a course for action that had led to the development and implementation of successful national frameworks and local strategies to address anti-Jewish hatred. The report contained 34 recommendations which were broadly grouped into five themes, namely: supporting fellow citizens in words and deeds, holding a responsible public debate, intensifying interfaith co-operation, modernising the fight against antisemitism and celebrating and communicating successes. Fundamentally, the inquiry provided the new parliament and government with a plan for action.
