Rome/Bratislava [ENA] On 5th February a major conference will be opened by OSCE Chairperson-in-Office and Slovakia’s Foreign Minister, Miroslav Lajčák, in Bratislava . The theme of the conference will focus on strengthening the security of Jewish people and communities, and how education and Holocaust remembrance, media and social media, and civil society can play an important role in combating anti-Semitism .

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe works for stability, prosperity and democracy in 57 states through political dialogue about shared values and through practical work that makes a true difference. The conference is the first to be organized by Slovakia’s 2019 OSCE Chairmanship and will bring together government representatives, political leaders, as well as stakeholders from academia, civil society and the media to discuss various and complementary approaches to addressing anti-Semitism. The participants will review the relevance of these approaches to the domestic contexts of OSCE participating States, and their applicability to strategies promoting tolerance and non-discrimination.

The conference is organized with the support of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR). Alongside the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, Minister Miroslav Lajčák the conference will open with remarks by: Ingibjörg Sólrún Gísladóttir, ODIHR Director; Benjamin L.
