In this roundtable, scholars with diverse views will discuss the questions of whether anti-Zionism is antisemitic. Is it right to link the fight against antisemitism to other struggles against racism and xenophobia? Can antisemitism be defined, and do existing definitions advance the fight against it? 

This event is part of the international workshop Defining Antisemitism: between history and politics hosted by the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, 31 May – 1 June. At the workshop, scholars from different disciplines will examine the current debate over definitions of antisemitism and explore what is at stake. The aim is to contribute historical and theoretical depth to a heated political debate.
