Collaboration and cooperation are central to the Institute’s work. We partner with others to realize specific events and on longer term initiatives.

The Pears Institute is a founding member of the International Consortium for Research on Antisemitism and Racism (ICRAR).

ICRAR organizes seminars and conferences and has a book series ‘Rethinking Antisemitism and Racism’  in collaboration with Palgrave Macmillan.

The Institute joins forces with the Institute of Historical Research each year to host a Holocaust Memorial Day lecture given by an international scholar.
