Abstract

Shami Chakrabarti’s report into anti-Semitism was published in June. Her inquiry followed the suspension of MP Naz Shah and ex-London mayor Ken Livingstone amid anti-Semitism claims. Here Hannah Weisfeld argues that although the report is helpful in staking out the boundaries of acceptable discourse, it fails to engage in understanding the complex nature of Jewish identity.
