Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia in Europe: Recent trends
Two ENAR briefings highlight recent developments targeting Jews and Muslims across Europe and call for action at EU level.
In the aftermath of the deadly attacks in Paris and the subsequent fear experienced by many Muslims and Jews across Europe, these briefings, co-signed with CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe and FEMYSO, the Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organisations, give insight into the current context and our call for action at EU level.
- The Paris attacks have added to the ongoing fears of European Jews, following anti-Semitic incidents across Europe, and many Jewish institutions have been under increasing military or police protection.
- As of 19 January, at least 50 Islamophobic incidents have been recorded since the Paris attacks, and a number of Islamophobic acts have also occurred in other EU countries.
