The Resurgence of Anti-Semitism in British Politics

Julia Ebner of ISD

The Forum on Geopolitics was pleased to host, together with the Community Security Trust, a panel event titled The Resurgence of Anti-Semitism in BritishPolitics at Caius College on 16 October as part of its Anti-Semitism and European Geopolitics series. Last year, the Community Security Trust recorded 1,309 Anti-Semitic incidents, including 307 violent instances of Anti-Semitism, higher than any year since the Trust began recording the phenomena. In this panel event, the Forum on Geopolitics explored why Anti-Semitism is on the rise in Britain, its impact on the British political climate and how best to tackle this noxious trend.


Featuring Lord Rowan Williams, Dr. Dave Rich of the Community Security Trust, Julia Ebner of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, and Detective Superintendent Dave Stringer of the Met, the event sought to probe anti-semitism on the extreme right and left of British politics in a contemporary context. The speakers addressed the sustained rise in anti-semitic hate crime in London, CST's most recent report on Anti-Semitism in Britain, contemporary challenges relating to education and Anti-Semitism, and the relationship between the extremism and Anti-Semitism. The Forum wishes to express its gratitude to the panelists and Caius College, and looks forward to the next instalment in this important series.
