UNESCO and the UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief Ahmed Shaheed are hosting a one-day expert consultation meeting on antisemitism on 28 May 2019 at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.

The meeting at UNESCO is part of a series of international consultation meetings organized by the UN Special Rapporteur in view of his report to the UN General Assembly later this year, which for the first time will focus on antisemitism. The consultation serves to outline contemporary trends of antisemitism in Europe and to discuss the impact of antisemitism on the rights of Jews and the freedom of religion or belief as well as responses and preventive measures to address antisemitism. To this end, UNESCO convened 24 experts, representing the main Jewish-related organizations, human rights organizations, national agencies in charge of intolerance and non-discriminations and academic research centers from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Israel.
