Information and Research

Campaign Against Antisemitism produces information, research and reports about antisemitism in Britain. Comparatively, Britain is one of the best countries in the world in which to be Jewish, but we must fight to keep it that way. The research below shows that Britain is at a tipping point: unless antisemitism is met with zero tolerance, it will continue to grow and British Jews will increasingly question their place in their own country.

Prevalence of antisemitic prejudice

36% of British adults believe at least one antisemitic stereotype to be true, 1 in 5 people believe at least two stereotypes and 12% believe at least three stereotypes.

Antisemitic crime levels

2016 saw the most antisemitic crime ever recorded in Britain, with a 45% rise in antisemitic crime since 2014, but a reduction in the number of antisemites charged by police and only 15 cases prosecuted.

Prosecutions for Antisemitism

Though antisemitic hate crime has risen to record levels, the list of prosecutions by the Crown Prosecution Service remains short. Hundreds of antisemitic hate crimes are recorded every year, but the number of prosecutions has not even reached 20 prosecutions per annum. The Crown Prosecution Service refuses to disclose how many cases of antisemitism it prosecutes each year, so we maintain our own register of prosecutions.

British Muslims and antisemitism

According to polling, British Muslims, are far more likely to believe antisemitic stereotypes that other British people, and rate Jews less favourably than people of other religions or no religion, yet British Muslims largely do not recognise antisemitism as a major problem.

Effects on British Jews

1 in 3 British Jews has considered leaving Britain in the past two years due to antisemitism with concern mounting over failures to tackle antisemitic crime and antisemitism in politics

Everyday Antisemitism

Everyday Antisemitism is a project of Campaign Against Antisemitism which invites Jews to share their everyday experiences of antisemitism instead of suffering in silence and allowing some to question whether antisemitism is a real problem.

Antisemitism in Political Parties

Our political parties must always investigate allegations of antisemitism and respond firmly, both to set an example and to ensure that those responsible for leading our country are not influenced by antisemitism. Campaign Against Antisemitism has no political affiliations or bias, and monitors antisemitic incidents in any political party.
