Organization for Security & Cooperation in Europe: 2003 OSCE Conference

(June 20, 2003)

The first high-level OSCE conference devoted specially to the issue of anti-Semitism ended in Vienna with calls by participants for the Organization and its 55 participating States to reaffirm their commitments made in Copenhagen in 1990 to condemn racial and ethnic hatred, including anti-Semitism, and to undertake effective follow-up action to demonstrate these commitments in practice.

More than 400 participants from governments and non-governmental organizations attended the OSCE Conference on anti-Semitism, which looked into best practices to prevent anti-Semitism through awareness-raising, education, the rule of law and anti-discrimination legislation, law enforcement, cultural preservation, and methodologies for combating anti-Semitism.
