Abstract: ECRI recommends that the governments of the member States: give a high priority to the fight against antisemitism; ensure that actions aimed at countering antisemitism are consistently given their due place amongst actions aimed at countering racism; ensure that the fight against antisemitism is carried out at all administrative levels (national, regional, local) and facilitate the involvement of a wide range of actors from different sectors of society (political, legal, economic, social, religious, educational) in these efforts; enact legislation aimed at combating antisemitism taking into account ECRI's sugges tions in its General Policy Recommendation No. 7 on national legislation to combat racism and racial discrimination; ensure that the law provides that, for all criminal offences, racist motivation constitutes an aggravating circumstance, and that such motivation covers antisemitic motivation; ensure that criminal law in the field of combating racism covers antisemitism and penalises the following antisemitic acts when committed intentionally.
