Luxembourg presents national action plan to combat antisemitism

Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel has presented the National Action Plan to Combat Antisemitism, which was adopted by the Government Council. This document is a roadmap of measures to be taken to combat the resurgence of antisemitism more effectively. It includes the following chapters:

  • A better legal and regulatory framework to combat hate crime and hate speech
  • A better understanding of the phenomenon of antisemitism in all its forms
  • Greater protection for victims and security for Jewish places of worship
  • Continue to support the memory of the Shoah, education and research
  • Highlight the contribution of Judaism to our history and contemporary society
  • Work to build resilience in society, particularly among young people and public officials, by educating, informing and raising awareness of the fight against antisemitism.
  • Establishing permanent structures to combat antisemitism more effectively

The police registered 76 cases of antisemitism in the Luxembourg in 2022. This served as an essential source of information for the preparation of the national action plan, according to Xavier Bettel in his response to a parliamentary question. The goal is to establish a comprehensive system for collecting data on antisemitic incidents in the country.
