Abstract: The participating states commit to: strive to ensure that their legal systems foster a safe environment free from anti-Semitic harassment, violence or discrimination in all fields of life; promote educational programmes for combating anti-Semitism; promote remembrance of and, as appropriate, education about the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the importance of respect for all ethnic and religious groups; combat hate crimes, which can be fuelled by racist, xenophobic and anti-Semitic propaganda in the media and on the Internet; encourage and support international organization and NGO efforts in these areas; collect and maintain reliable information and statistics about anti-Semitic crimes, and other hate crimes, committed within their territory, report such information periodically to the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), and make this information available to the public; endeavour to provide the ODIHR with the appropriate resources to accomplish the tasks agreed upon in the Maastricht Ministerial Decision on Tolerance and Non-Discrimination; work with the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly to determine appropriate ways to review periodically the problem of anti-Semitism; encourage development of informal exchanges among experts in appropriate fora on best practices and experiences in law enforcement and education.
