French government launches consultations on fighting antisemitism

France has launched consultations to fight antisemitism – inviting the heads of religious groups as well as anti-discrimination NGOs to share their experiences and discuss ways to tackle increasing hostility against Jewish people.  

The French ministry that deals with discrimination said the aim of the consultations was to define a common base of national values against antisemitism.

“When we see the unfortunate volume of antisemitic acts, we think the whole of society must wake up,” Gender Equality and Anti-Discrimination Minister Aurore Bergé told French TV news channel BFMTV, referring to a “terrifying resurgence”.

Bergé is the official tasked with bringing together the heads of anti-discrimination groups and Jewish community leaders, including the CRIF and UEJF and anti-racist groups Licra and SOS Racisme.
