‘Official data’ is understood here as that collected by law enforcement agencies, criminal justice systems and relevant state ministries at the national level. ‘Unofficial data’ refers to data collected by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and civil society organisations (CSOs). This update compiles available data on antisemitic incidents collected by international, governmental and non-governmental sources, covering the period 1 January 2003–31 December 2013. No data on manifestations of antisemitism were available for Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Romania and Slovenia at the time this update was compiled.

This is the 10th in a series of yearly updates about data collected on antisemitism published by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) and its predecessor, the European Union Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC).

The report is based on data collected and published on the site of the Coordination Forum for Countering Antisemitism. Naturally, the number of events published in the report does not reflect the total actual events that took place, and sometimes the data is significantly different from the data published by various Jewish communities. However, in our view, the data is reflecting the tendencies.

The Inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Combating Anti-Semitism (ICCA) is an organization comprised of parliamentarians from around the world working to combat resurgent global anti-Semitism. Following the November 2010 conference of the ICCA in Ottawa, Canada, the parliamentarians adopted a Protocol that included a commitment to establishing an International Task Force of Internet Specialists comprised of parliamentarians and experts. The goal of this task force is to create common indicators to identify and monitor anti-Semitism and other manifestations of hate online and to develop policy recommendations for governments and international frameworks to address these problems.

The survey was carried out online, and the eight EU Member States covered are home to over 90 % of the EU’s estimated Jewish population.9 In the absence of other reliable sampling frames, FRA opted to use online surveying as it allowed respondents to complete the survey at their own pace, while also informing them about FRA, the organisations managing the data collection and how the collected data would be used. This method had the potential to allow all interested self-identified Jewish people in the EU Member States surveyed to take part and share their experiences. It was also the method which could most easily survey respondents from all the selected EU Member States under equal conditions. This method is, however, unable to deliver a random probability sample fulfilling the statistical criteria for representativeness

Gli ebrei dell’Unione europea (UE) continuano a subire insulti, episodi di
discriminazione, molestie e persino atti di violenza fisica che, nonostante
gli sforzi concertati da parte sia dell’UE che dei suoi Stati membri, non
sembrano svanire nel passato. Sebbene la legge garantisca molti diritti
importanti, le possibilità del popolo ebraico di godere di tali diritti nella
realtà continuano ad essere ostacolate da pregiudizi diffusi e di lunga data.
L’indagine on-line condotta dalla FRA sulle esperienze di discriminazione
e reati generati dall’odio vissute dal popolo ebraico in otto Stati membri
dell’UE, rivela un diffuso timore di antisemitismo su Internet e di
vittimizzazione; un preoccupante livello di discriminazione antisemita,
in particolare sul lavoro e negli istituti scolastici; preoccupazione per
la negazione e la banalizzazione dell’Olocausto e per i reati generali
dall’odio. L’indagine evidenzia anche altri problemi connessi, come ad
esempio il fatto che le vittime non denunciano i reati di antisemitismo

Die Ergebnisse der FRA‑Online‑Erhebung zu den Erfahrungen der jüdischen Bevölkerung mit Diskriminierung und Hasskriminalität in acht EU‑Mitgliedstaaten haben ergeben, dass eine weit verbreitete Angst vor Antisemitismus im Internet und vor Viktimisierung besteht. Die Ergebnisse zeigen auch, dass antisemitische Diskriminierung in besorgniserregendem Ausmaß – besonders am Arbeitsplatz und in Bildungseinrichtungen – besteht. Grund zur Sorge besteht auch in Sachen Holocaustleugnung und -verharmlosung sowie Hasskriminalität. Auch hiermit verbundene
Probleme werden in der Erhebung aufgeworfen, wie die Tatsache, dass antisemitische Verbrechen von Opfern nicht zur Anzeige gebracht werden
