The only centre in the UK dedicated to promoting understanding of anti-Semitism has been boosted by a £1.4 million grant.

The Pears Foundation announced funding to enable the growth of the Birkbeck-based Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism from 2015-2020.

A new post for a social sciences lecturer will be created while the successful Pears Institute Early Career Fellowship scheme will continue.

Trevor Pears, executive chairman of Pears Foundation, said: “The Institute has become an important bridge between academic research and public policy.”
