The inaugural international conference, "Global Antisemitism: A Crisis of Modernity”, was held at Yale University (New Haven, CT, United States) on August 23-25, 2010, under the auspices of the The Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Antisemitism (YIISA), with the support of the Isaac and Jessie Kaplan Centre for Jewish Studies and Research, University of Cape Town, The Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism, Hebrew University, Jerusalem, The Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism and Racism, Tel Aviv University, the Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism, Indiana University, as well as other institutions.
It is recommended that conferences such as these occur annually. It is also advised that other leading institutes which specialize in the study of antisemitism host the conferences on a rotating basis. The recognized centers are: the Vidal Sassoon Institute, Hebrew University Jerusalem; the Stephen Roth Institute, Tel Aviv University; the Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism, Indiana University; the Center for Research on Antisemitism, Technical University Berlin; and the Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Antisemitism, Yale University. It could be determined that other institutions be suitable places to hold future IASA conferences. It is also recommended that conferences be held in Israel on a rotating basis. Institutes in other regions of the world may be deemed appropriate to hold such events, such as in London and Paris.
