Report on combating antisemitism to eliminate discrimination and intolerance based on religion or belief

20 September 2019
Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief
To the 74th Session of General Assembly on 17 October 2019


The report identifies violence, discrimination and expressions of hostility motivated by antisemitism as a serious obstacle to the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion or belief. The Special Rapporteur stresses that antisemitism, if left unchecked by Governments, poses risks not only to Jews, but also to members of other minority communities. The Special Rapporteur urges States to adopt a human-rights based approach in combating antisemitism, as should be done in combating all forms of religious intolerance.
