Anti-Semitism and European Geopolitics

Anti-Semitism and European Geopolitics

The Forum on Geopolitics at POLIS, University of Cambridge, plans to convene a major international conference in Winter 2015-2016, exploring the origins and dynamics of Anti-Semitism in European geopolitics, how historically it was subsequently exported to other regions, and the reasons and manifestations of its return to Europe today. We will examine the religious, racial, economic and intellectual roots of this ancient hatred in its different national and regional contexts. We will explore how Holocaust denial, long prevalent among the far-right fringe in European politics, entered the mainstream in Iran and across the Arab world, where it has often gone hand in hand with annihilatory rhetoric against Israel. The purpose of the conference is to interrogate Anti-Semitism in its widest context and to explore the implications for modern-day policymaking and statecraft. Themes from this conference will then be taken forward to form the basis of one of the Centre's "Laboratories for World Construction."
