IHRA Chair in Brussels


On 1 October, IHRA Chair, Szabolcs Takács attended the EU colloquium entitled "A fundamental rights based approach to tackling antisemitic and anti-Muslim hatred in Europe: specificities, commonalities and responses”.

The Colloquium looked at trends and underlying reasons for antisemitic and anti-Muslim incidents in the European Union, their impact on people's lives and rights and explored ways to counter indifference in society at large. It explored the most relevant avenues to address these phenomena, and examined to what extent they require specific or common responses. Focus was placed on projects, policies and legislation designed to combat hate crime, hate speech and discrimination.

More information about the colloqium can be found in the programme.
