We at CEJI welcome the decision of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) to adopt a working definition of antisemitism, passed unanimously by its 31 member states, of which 24 are European Union countries. The working definition as adopted recognises the reality of contemporary antisemitism and should serve as a guide for policy-makers and practitioners.

All people are entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, without distinction based on race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. On 24th May, the General Affairs Council of the European Union will discuss integration of migrants in a rule of law dialogue and our organisations want to recall the spirit of Article 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Between November 2015 and March 2016, CEJI has given more than 20 training courses on various topics such as 'Understanding and managing cultural diversity in my class and my professional practice', 'Better understanding Judaism and contemporary manifestations of anti-Semitism' and 'Understanding Islam and contemporary manifestations of Islamophobia'. These training courses have so far taken place in Hainault, Namur, Liege, Luxembourg province and Brussels. The final training course of our six month journey across Belgium took place towards the end of March at the Athénée Royal d'Ixelles, closing a cycle that brought together more than 300 secondary school teachers since we began back in November 2015.
