CEJI - A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe
Welcome to the November 2012 edition of CEJI Flash.
Just a few weeks ago, in the European Parliament in Brussels, we launched an important piece of research which is the culmination of our award-winning Belieforama religious diversity and anti-discrimination programme. The resulting set of 5 practical recommendations concerns not only European and national governments, but also emphasizes the responsibilities of religious and civil society groups to be more. You can read the policy brief in several languages below.
Also this month, two events in London as part of our Facing Facts! project, which aims to improve hate crime monitoring, and some staff news!

Statement in the House of Commons, UK

On the 21 November 2012, in London's House of Commons, we will make a public statement that hate crime affects us all, not just religious, racial and sexual minorities.
The event will be moderated by John Mann MP and speakers include Paul Giannasi, (UK Ministry of Justice), Joanna Perry, (OSCE/ODIHR), Robin Sclafani (CEJI) and Fiyaz Mughal OBE (Tell MAMA).

Also in London this month, we are holding the first of our train-the-trainer programmes for NGOs on how to monitor and respond to hate crime from across the spectrum of communities and issues.

Staff News

Last week our Community Affairs Co-ordinator Melissa Sonnino participated in the 5th Pan European Conference of Jewish Community Centers in Marseilles: "[this was] an extremely exciting experience that confirms, once again, how JCCs represent the most vibrant and lively part of  European Jewry nowadays. More than 50 people attended CEJI’s workshops proposed during the conference on confronting prejudices and discriminations within and outsides the JCCs. An inspirational encounter that nourished CEJI’s commitment to actively engage more and more Jewish people with its work to create inclusive environments”. 
Not quite a staff member yet, baby Ailbhe (pronounced Alva) was born on 6 November to happy parents Jonathan (our webmaster) and Caoimhe.
