Event description

Description

The Georgetown University Center for Jewish Civilization cordially invites you to the 2018 Stoltz Family Biennial Conference on Contemporary European Anti-Semitism.

Two generations after the Holocaust, Europe faces a constellation of threats including rising populism, political nationalism and anti-Semitism. These worrying trends, stimulated by various political and nationalist voices, have called for the end of the liberal international order, prevailing in Europe, the United States and other parts of the world. What has caused the return of far-right nationalism to our politics? What can we do to protect the important steps towards tolerance and inclusion that have been won in recent decades? How can the European Union and its member states demonstrate their commitment to the fundamental rights of citizens to live in peace and free from abuse and fear, in order to ensure that Jewish life can continue in Europe?

  • Ambassador David Saperstein (Senior Fellow at the Center for Jewish Civilization, former U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom at the State Department)

  • Ira Forman (Senior Fellow at the Center for Jewish Civilization, former U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism)
