Event description

Description

For the last two years Dr Dave Rich has seen relations between the Labour Party and Britain's Jews collapse amid constant allegations of antisemitism in the party. Much of this is directed at Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, but it reflects much deeper trends on the far left, where conspiracy theories about 'Zionist' power or comparisons between Israel and Nazi Germany are commonplace and Israel is seen as a pariah. This talk will delve into the thorny problem of antisemitism in the Labour Party and ask whether the party can rebuild the trust and support it enjoyed from previous generations of British Jews.

Dr. Dave Rich is Head of Policy for the Community Security Trust and author of 'The Left's Jewish Problem: Jeremy Corbyn, Israel and Anti-Semitism'. Dave is an Associate Research Fellow at the Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism, Birkbeck, University of London, and writes regularly on antisemitism, anti-Zionism and extremism for newspapers and journals in the UK and overseas.
