Presentation of the OSCE/ODIHR publication about fight against antisemitism and security of Jewish communities

On 14 June 2018, Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, in co-operation with OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) as well as with the Ministry of Interior of the Slovak Republic, the Jewish Community of Bratislava and the Museum of Jewish Culture organized in Bratislava the discussion event which addressed the security needs of Jewish communities. 

The event provided an opportunity to present the Slovak-language version of the ODIHR publication Understanding Anti-Semitic Hate Crimes and Addressing the Security Needs of Jewish Communities – A Practical Guide, which details practical steps that governments can take, in co-operation with Jewish communities, to prevent and respond to Anti-Semitic hate crimes. 

In addition to experts from the OSCE and representatives of the relevant state institutions and NGOs, president IVO Grigorij Mesežnikov took part in the event with contribution „Contemporary Anti-Semitism in Slovakia: Socio-Political Context“. He focused on factors influencing the status of the Jewish community in the Slovak Republic and relations between its members and the majority population (state policy in the area of culture and religious freedom, attitudes of political parties and non-partisan actors, activities of right-extremist and radical-nationalist forces, degree of anti-Semitic views in public opinion, media activities, etc.).
