To ask the Scottish Government, further to its news release of 13 June 2017, Next steps on tackling hate crime, what work it has carried out since 2007 to tackle antisemitism, including how it works with other countries.

Answered by Angela Constance (26/06/2017):

The Scottish Government is committed to doing all that we can to prevent and eradicate hate crime and prejudice, including anti-semitism. In our response to the Report of the Independent Advisory Group on Hate Crime, Prejudice and Community Cohesion we set out an ambitious yet practical plan of action to make progress in this area.. Our response and these action can be viewed at:

Since 2007 the Scottish Government has been supporting the work of the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities to promotes dialogue and understanding between the Jewish community and other communities in Scotland. We have also supported Interfaith Scotland to deliver Scotland’s National Holocaust Memorial Day event each year since 2012 in partnership with the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust. This event promotes multi-faith and multi-cultural society based on mutual trust, respect and understanding.

The Scottish Government welcomes the opportunity to engage with international governments as appropriate to raise matters of importance and to hear the views and concerns of other countries.
