The Fifth annual Seminar between the European Commission and the Government of the State of Israel on the fight against racism, xenophobia and antisemitism took place on 26 and 27 October in Brussels and Mechelen.

In line with the EU-Israel Action Plan, the objective of the Seminar was to informally exchange information and best practices on combating racism, xenophobia and antisemitism. During the first day, the Seminar enabled effective sharing of experiences, practices and methodologies relating to racist data and trends; access to justice and effective redress against racist discrimination; fight against racist hate speech; and the prevention of racism through education, training and remembrance activities. On the second day, the participants visited the 'Kazerne Dossin' in Mechelen - the future Memorial Museum and Documentation Centre on Holocaust and Human Rights in Belgium.
