The question of how to define and combat antisemitism divides both the Jewish world and global opinion, with Israel and Zionism at the heart of these disputes. This roundtable brings together voices from diverse perspectives to take a closer look at what is antisemitism today.

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.
