The Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism was launched in November 2010.
Our founding principle is that the study of antisemitism is vital to understanding all forms of racism, prejudice and xenophobia.
We are a centre of innovative research and teaching and contribute to discussion and public policy formation on antisemitism and racial intolerance.
Based at Birkbeck, University of London, and established by the Pears Foundation, the Institute is both independent and inclusive.More About Us »
