Gerald Steinberg: NGOs, Antisemitism, and the IHRA Working Definition
18:00 - 19:00
Many of the NGOs that claim to promote human rights and similar ethical norms have been notably reticent to include antisemitism on their agendas, reports and campaigns. In many cases, these groups have actively contributed to anti-Zionism (rejection of the legitimacy of a Jewish nation-state), and to demonization of Israel and its Jewish supporters. In addition, a number of influential NGOs, including many funded by the EU, individual European governments and the United Nations, are actively campaigning to delegitimize the IHRA working definition of antisemitism. In this webinar, we will describe and analyze these processes, the underlying factors that explain this behavior, and the contradictions between the declaratory positions of the funders endorsing the IHRA definition, and the funding processes.
