An international non-profit organisation established in 1991, CEJI stands with individuals and organisations of all religions, cultures and backgrounds to promote a diverse and inclusive Europe.
CEJI works to combat prejudice and discrimination and to promote social cohesion through training, education, dialogue and advocacy:
A leading provider of diversity education and training in Europe, CEJI works through ever-growing networks to offer a constructive response to prejudice and discrimination.
A Jewish voice at a European level, CEJI facilitates Jewish participation in European affairs, gaining recognition for Jewish experiences and concerns and empowering Jewish organisations to become more internationally and interculturally active.
Contributing innovative ideas to policy-making processes dealing with anti-discrimination and social inclusion, CEJI actively advocates for policies promoting a diverse and inclusive Europe.
Committed to enhancing intercultural and interfaith understanding, CEJI is at the forefront of a new Jewish Muslim dialogue and co-operation initiative.

We are a leading provider of education and training opportunities that develop respect for diversity and the skills to succeed in a multicultural Europe. We offer a wide range of Diversity Education programmes through well-functioning, self-sustainable national and European structures.
Through our Advocacy work, we contribute to policy-making processes dealing with antisemitism, racism, xenophobia, discrimination and diversity education at the institutions of the European Union, the OSCE, the Council of Europe and within the wider spectrum of European organisations and networks active in these areas.
Many of the humanistic principles engrained in Europe’s cultural and philosophical heritage are also core values of the Jewish tradition. As a leading European Jewish organisation, CEJI believes that the contribution of Jewish values, by Engaging Jewish Communities, experiences and ideas is central to Europe’s future as a peaceful, integrated and just continent.
Facing Facts is an innovative programme aiming to tackle the issue of hate crime and hate speech in Europe. Since its inception in 2011, this initiative has been praised for its role in training on, and advocating for, hate crime monitoring systems that expose overlooked hate motivated acts such as racist, antisemitic, anti-muslim and homophobic hate crimes.
