Launched on 1st February 2020, NOA – Networks Overcoming Antisemitism, offers a pioneering approach to tackle the problem of rising antisemitism in Europe. With its unique partnership of major Jewish networks, it will evaluate EU Member States’ policies across areas, from education to culture and security, and help them to develop holistic national action plans to address and prevent antisemitism.
The project involves a consortium with five other European Jewish organizations – CEJI (A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe), WJC (World Jewish Congress), AEPJ (The European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage), EUJS (European Union of Jewish Students) and EUPJ (European Union for Progressive Judaism).
An online hub of good practices and resources, to be published on http://noa-project.eu/ later this year, will support Member States in the implementation of their action plans. Accompanied by various social, cultural and educational activities across the EU, the project outputs will be further multiplied via the partnership and their networks.
- Anti-bias trainings and teaching tools will be disseminated to public authorities, schools, communities and sport clubs.
- Cultural events celebrating pluralisms and promoting dialogue will be initiated by Jewish cultural institutions.
- Social media campaigns will shed light on the positive contributions of European Jewry to wider communities where they live.
- Stakeholder workshops amongst policy-makers will help to develop and evaluate national action plans.

The NOA National Conference was a day of exchange on the results, lessons, measures and experiences in addressing, preventing and fighting antisemitism in Belgium, based on the findings of the NOA Report Cards research. The event highlighted the strengths to build upon, acknowledged weaknesses for further action, presented the articulated objectives resulting from the process, and provided visibility to good practices identified. The participants included Belgian policy-makers and policy-influencers from different fields.
