(See also: Holocaust Denial)

In order to distinguish what is antisemitism, OHPI uses the definition put forward by the European Union Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC), now known as the Fundamental Rights Agency of the European Union, in 2004. See the Working Definition of Antisemitism.



OHPI produces detailed reports documenting and analysing online hate. The reports are produced over a number of months addressing a theme, such as Antisemitism, in a systematic and in-depth manner.
