• How can we ensure that the EU Council Declaration on the Fight against Antisemitism will be implemented through a holistic set of national policies? 
  • What tools can help the governments to create that change? 
  • How can we benchmark progress over time?

The NOA project is researching and compiling National Report Cards for EU member states, to hold governments accountable to their obligations, and support them in the developing and implementing of National Action Plans as envisaged by the 2018 EU Council Declaration on the Fight against Antisemitism and reinforced by the 2020 EU Council Declaration on Mainstreaming the Fight against Antisemitism across Policy Areas.

So far, we developed the National Report Card on Belgium. The next ones coming are on Hungary, The Netherlands, Italy, and Austria.

The NOA Report Cards Library

National Report Cards (to be uploaded as they become available in 2022) include the contextualised, summarised and scored indicators based on available evidence with recommendations resulting from a process of stakeholder engagement. The main target group of the National Report Cards are national and regional policy-makers. Another target group are civil society organisations for whom the indicators can shape their own national advocacy and programmatic strategies. Finally, researchers from many disciplines are welcome to make use of these Report Cards to evaluate the implementation and impact of policies and programmes that counter antisemitism and foster Jewish life.

The NOA Belgian Report Card is now available. You can find the NOA Belgian Report Card here in English, here in French, and here in Dutch.

The National Report Card Methodology examines areas like culture, education, hate crime, hate speech, Holocaust remembrance, intercultural and interfaith dialogue, media, religious freedom, security, and sport.

The Report Cards can serve to measure EU Member States’ policies through hundreds of indicators based on international standards. These indicators have been developed by experts and by the NOA project partners. We gather data, we interview experts and stakeholders, we identify missing data, and we provide a justification of each country’s score.

In order to facilitate mutual learning and highlight good practices, we organise workshops, national conferences, and a European conference.
