Antisemitism online continues to rise, as seen in our recent report analysing the amplification of antisemitic narratives on Twitter. With that upwards trend, civil society’s role in countering hate speech is more important than ever. ISD, UNESCO, the World Jewish Congres and B’nai B’rith International hosted a workshop in May, to talk about tackling this issue online, exploring routes for joint advocacy and response across society. Attendees ranged across civil society, human rights and Jewish communal organisations, as well as international experts on policy and education.
