Indiana University, 4:00 pm, Global & International Studies Building 1060

Jews are demonized in France by the extreme right with traditional stereotypes and by the radical left in anti-Zionist forms. Mr. Camus will explain how fringe groups of the extreme right and parts of the far left find common ground in radical anti-Zionism, and what challenges this poses to the social democratic left. The talk will be followed by a discussion on contemporary antisemitism in France, including antisemitism from Muslim communities, with Dr. Gunther Jikeli.

Jean-Yves Camus is an associate researcher at the French Institute for International & Strategic Affairs. He is also a member of the Task Force on Antisemitism at the European Jewish Congress. Camus published widely on the far right and extremism in France and Europe. His latest book (with Nicolas Lebourg), “Les Droites extrêmes en Europe (The Extreme Right Movements in Europe)” was published in 2016 with Seuil. This event is free and open to the public.
