4. Panel II
On September 7, 2016, the Missions of Canada, Israel, the United States, and Delegation of the European Union to the United Nations, will jointly host a full day forum on global Antisemitism. Four separate interactive panels will consider different factors related to Antisemitism around the world, including: government responses to counter Antisemitism, social media and the Internet, civil society coalitions, and youth and education. Panelists will include government, civil society, and private sector representatives, who will assess the scope of rising Antisemitism worldwide, compare government and private sector responses, share best practices, and provide concrete recommendations for combatting Antisemitism globally in these four areas. This forum will build on the January 2015 UN General Assembly meeting on Antisemitism by examining specific elements of the rise of global Antisemitism from the perspective of governmental, nongovernmental and private sector representatives, and provide clear recommendations to governments and civil society for effective response addressing this challenge in the future.
