Current Forms of Antisemitism Course

ENCATE develops and implements long-term training programs to equip educators with profound and nuanced academic knowledge and to enable them to recognize and respond to various manifestations of antisemitism.

Current Forms of Antisemitism

KIgA e.V., the Center for Research on Antisemitism, and ENCATE have been organizing a Certificate Program on Current Forms of Antisemitism since 2021.

Uncovering the roots of antisemitism and linking its winding history to its manifestation today helped fellow practitioners tackle this issue in its varied manifestations. We translated this ambitious aim into a long-term blended training course with renowned experts, targeting educators and activists from different European countries. The program covers such topics as antisemitism definitions, Israel-related antisemitism, online hate, conspiracy theories, and intersectionality.
