Struggling with Justice: Antisemitism as a Judicial ChallengeAntisemitism and Right-Wing Extremism
Sub-project: Qualitative Analysis of Jewish Communities' Handling of Criminal Antisemitic Incidents and their Perception and Handling by the Judiciary
Researchers: Dr. Olaf Glöckner, Dr. Anja Schmidt-Kleinert
Funding: Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung. In cooperation with the University of Giessen, the University of Heidelberg, Humboldt University of Berlin and the Research and Information Center on Antisemitism (Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft RIAS).
The judicial practice with regard to antisemitic incidents in Germany has hardly been scientifically examined to date. The project aims to close gaps in scientific knowledge by systematically taking stock of how the judiciary deals with antisemitism, combined with the question of the (legal) terms of antisemitism. The judicial practice is being monitored from a transdisciplinary and in particular a sociological perspective. The often neglected perspective of those individuals being involved also plays a central role. How do affected Jews experience the judicial handling of incidents they experience as antisemitic? As a result of the project, options for action are to be developed, which are prepared in communication processes in an application-oriented manner for legal training and the judiciary.
