Since May 2010 the Department for Communities and Local Government has supported two pieces of research into antisemitism. In November 2010 we supported the publication of Playing the Nazi by Card by the European Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism (EISCA) which looked at antisemitic discourse. In September 2017 we supported alongside the Community Security Trust the Institute of Jewish Policy Research's (JPR) study entitled Antisemitism in contemporary Great Britain: Key findings from the JPR survey of attitudes towards Jews and Israel which takes an in-depth look at attitudes towards Jews and Israel among the population of Great Britain, both across society as a whole, and in key subgroups within the population, notably the far-left, the far-right, Christians and Muslims.
