CEJI delivers online Unmasking Modern Antisemitism training to the European Commission staff


Marking the anniversary of Kristallnacht, the annual anti-bias training on antisemitism for the staff of the European Commission was for the first time delivered online, in response to the exceptional COVID19 restrictions. As tradition by now, it was facilitated by CEJI Director Robin Sclafani and Facing Facts Coordinator Melissa Sonnino on the 11th and 12th November. Using the Facing Facts Online learning platform, the training takes places in two parts, extending through early February 2021.

The importance of anti-bias training for policy implementation has been well-recognised in the new EU Action Plan against Racism, and I am now more convinced than ever that it is possible to do this kind of deep work online as well as offline

– said CEJI Director Robin Sclafani after the first two days of the training was completed.

This is the fifth time CEJI delivers this training, and the first time through its online learning platform, which so far has been hosting courses on hate speech and hate crime. With the Corona pandemic, CEJI took advantage of its long-functioning online learning platform and has been increasingly moving its anti-bias training activities online, merging its pedagogical approach with new technological solutions.
