Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism

How to take Action

Home

The Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism 2015 (GFCA) is an initiative led by the Israeli Government to combat rising antisemitism around the world.

The GFCA will be held this year in May at the International Conference centre in Jerusalem. The conference will have around 1000 attendees, including government officials, members of parliament from multiple countries, representatives of NGOs, Jewish communities and academic researchers.

It is the premier biannual gathering for assessing the state of antisemitism globally and formulating effective responses.

The forum this year will focus on two main themes:

  1. The oldest hatred in the newest vessels: confronting antisemitism and hate speech on the internet and in social media and;

  2. The rise in antisemitism in Europe's cities.

OHPI's CEO, Dr Andre Oboler, is a member of the Steering Committee of the GFCA. He is also the co-chair of the GFCA's Working Group on Antisemitism on the Internet and in the Media. On behalf of the Global Forum, OHPI is compiling a report on online antisemitism. Our online hate reporting tool fightagainsthate.com is being used so people around the world can help us gather examples of online antisemitism.

You are invited to join our campaign by registering at Fight Against Hate and reporting the online antisemitism you encounter on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

The 2015 Global Forum will also see some major announcements in relation to the next phase of our Fight Against Hate software and the fight against online antisemitism and other forms of hate.
