Racism and anti-Semitism are expressed in the streets, on the walls of places of worship, on social networks and in discussion forums. For too many people, they result in insults, intimidation, physical aggression and discrimination. Higher education is not exempt from this issue. The involvement of everyone is imperative.
The National Plan to fight against Racism and Anti-Semitism (2018-2020), presented by the Prime Minister on 19 March 2018, involves all ministries. Led by DILCRAH (the inter-ministerial delegation to fight against racism, anti-Semitism and anti-LGBT hatred), this plan is intended to strengthen the network of racism-anti-Semitism advisers in Higher Education Institutions. The organisation of training and national working groups, the collection of good practices and the partnership with associations fighting racism and anti-Semitism all enable the advisers to become resource persons within their institutions and to react in the event of a racist or anti-Semitic incident.
