B’nai B’rith International and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, in partnership with UNESCO, launch a guide to help Jewish institutions tackle the challenges created by online hate speech, particularly in the European context.
The publication, called “Online Antisemitism: A Toolkit for Civil Society”, was inspired by the growing scenario of antisemitism, conspiracy theories focusing on the pandemic, occasions of Holocaust distortion, blaming the Jews under the pretext of opposing Israeli policies and now, on historical revisionism linked to the war in Ukraine. The guide:
- provides a comprehensive overview of the online antisemitic threat landscape;
- unpacks shifting policies surrounding online antisemitism, exploring both actions taken by social media companies and emerging government approaches;
- offers a wide-ranging set of recommendations for effective civil-society action.
The guide provides an overview of the online antisemitism threat landscape, a summary of existing policy responses on an international and national level across a range of European contexts, and a broad set of recommendations for civil society engagement with governments, platforms and wider communities to address this challenge.
