European Commission Appoints Officials To Combat Anti-Semitism and Anti-Muslim Hatred

The European Commission announced on Tuesday that it has appointed a Coordinator on Combating Antisemitism (Katharina von Schnurbein, a German national), and a Coordinator on Combating Anti-Muslim Hatred (David Friggieri, a national of Malta).  The new positions grew out of a Colloquium on Fundamental Rights held last October.
