• 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.

Standards are based upon international norms which have already been established through regulations, directives, resolutions and other documents adopted  by inter-governmental organisations such as the European Union institutions, Council of Europe, OSCE, and UNESCO. These standards serve to formulate measurable indicators and they also inform the roles, responsibilities and actions that need to be taken by governments through the relevant public authorities.

The NOA Standards are available to download as a zipped file of PDFs. They are grouped under the following policy areas:

Culture and Heritage, Dialogue, Education, Hate Crime, Hate Speech, Holocaust Remembrance, Media, Religious Freedom, Security, and Sports.

Indicators are aspirational markers that can guide and monitor the development of government policies which prevent and counter antisemitism while fostering Jewish life. The indicators are followed by key monitoring questions to serve the purpose of benchmarking and assessing the existence (or not) of government policies in each of the policy areas.  These questions indicate the level of compliance with the associated standard(s). Additional guiding questions are also provided to assist explorations into the areas concerned with each indicator. The indicators, along with monitoring and guiding questions are presented as thematic scoresheets and can serve as an independent tool for various actors (governments and NGOs) for self-assessment, monitoring and advocacy purposes.

The NOA Indicators are available to download as a zipped file of PDFs. They are grouped under the following policy areas:

Culture and Heritage, Dialogue, Education, Hate Crime, Hate Speech, Holocaust Remembrance, Media, Religious Freedom, Security, and Sports.

The NOA Overview Tables merge and align the Standards and Indicators described above. They essentially provides a useful comparative view of the same information.

The Overview Tables are available to download as a zipped file of PDFs. They are grouped under the following policy areas: Culture and Heritage, Dialogue, Education, Hate Crime, Hate Speech, Holocaust Remembrance, Media, Religious Freedom, Security, and Sports.

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.
