The Birkbeck Institute for the Study of Antisemitism is a respected source of independent advice on public policy. Our work informs the responses to antisemitism of a wide range of institutions, nationally and internationally, including government and non-governmental agencies and political and cultural organizations.
We provide expertise and guidance on how to define and recognize antisemitism, policy advice on the nature and causes of contemporary antisemitism and the ways in which it can be combatted, as well as advice on educational initiatives.
We collaborate with leading museums and heritage organizations as they deal with issues concerning Jewish history and questions connected with the antisemitic dimension of specific exhibits and artefacts.
The Institute provides academically informed comment as well as background briefings for journalists.
