All Party Parliamentary Inquiry Report on Antisemitism

The report of the All Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Antisemitism was published in February 2015.

During the Israel-Gaza war of July and August 2014 there was a significant and unacceptable increase in antisemitic incidents in the UK. The chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group Against Antisemitism, John Mann MP, instigated a parliamentary inquiry into the lessons that could be learned from the upsurge of anti-Jewish violence emanating from the Middle East conflict.

The terms of reference for the report were:

  1. To  consider the events of July/August 2014 and the causes and consequences of the
    highest-ever recorded number of antisemitic incidents during that period
  2. To consider this in the light of the 2006 All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into
    Antisemitism report
  3. To review the situation in the uK in the light of similar events in Europe and draw any
    lessons that can be learnt
  4. To identify and review the effectiveness of existing legal and other frameworks for
    addressing antisemitism in the uK, with a view to avoiding the extreme anti-Jewish
    violence in Europe that resulted from the conflict
  5. To identify models of best practice for guaranteeing intercommunal cohesion and
    Jewish communal welfare at times of increased tension.

A number of sub-reports were commissioned to aid the deliberations of the parliamentary panel and are also available to download.
