US religious freedom body funding research project on anti-Semitism in Europe


(JTA) — A government-funded body on religious freedom is looking to launch a research project that examines anti-Semitism in Europe.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, an independent body that tracks religious freedoms overseas and has members appointed by leadership from both houses of Congress and the president, has issued a tender for the project.

“This research project would seek to enhance the understanding of the phenomenon of anti-Semitism in European countries and government responses to it, in order to make specific and effective recommendations for United States policy,” according to the announcement.

The final report is expected to be generated within six months.
