Anti-Semitism in France in 2016: A Survey
November 1, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Jean-Yves Camus (Institut de Relations Internationales et Stratégiques) will share the facts and figures of antisemitism in 2016, with a look back on the period beginning with the start of the Second Intifada, which is when the figures reach an unprecedented level. The talk will also take a look at the perpetrators of antisemitic violence and the continuity of the prejudices.
Jean-Yves Camus is Director of the Observatoire des Radicalités Politiques (ORAP) and Associate Researcher at Institut de Relations Internationales et Stratégiques (IRIS). Camus has been a member of the Task Force on Antisemitism of the European Jewish Congress and a Director of the Consistoire de Paris, the Jewish Orthodox religious authority in the Paris area. Since 2009 Camus is registered as Global Expert for the UN Alliance of Civilizations. He was research director at the Centre Européen de Recherche et d’Action sur le Racisme et l’Antisémitisme (CERA) in Paris. His research interests include antisemitism, political and religious extremism and minority rights. Camus received his DEA in contemporary history from the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris and studied political science at the Université Paris-I Sorbonne. His latest book, Les droits extrêmes en Europe (with Nicolas Lebourg) will be published in English at Harvard University Press next year.
Organized by the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies.
