Final outputs of a project examining modern antisemitism in the V4 countries

The Tom Lantoš Institute (Budapest) and the Institute for Public Affairs have published the final outputs of the project Addressing Modern Antisemitism in the Visegrad Countries,  which two cooperating institutions implemented in 2020 – 2022 with the support of European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme. 

The aim of the final research report was to explore the extent, scope and prevalence of antisemitic prejudice in the four postcommunist countries of Central and Eastern Europe known as the Visegrad Four: the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Study explores how antisemitism is related to various socio-demographic and attitudinal factors in order to understand what causes antisemitic prejudice and identify which social groups are prone to such prejudice. In addition, regional specificities, including victim consciousness, historical perceptions of Holocaust bystandership and their relationship to antisemitic prejudice are also examined. 

Another output of the project, a policy report on countering antisemitism in the Visegrad countries, contains policy recommendations for various areas (public policy, education, media, civil society etc.). These recommendations have been elaborated using research data from a representative public opinion poll and focus groups, as well as the conclusions of national and regional expert workshops.


The short video provides a summary of the main research findings of the project.
