Full text:
The article is devoted to the policy of French President François Hollande (2012–17) aimed at combating anti-Semitism. The author describes the extent of its implementation both domestically (in cooperation with the Jewish diaspora) and internationally (development of relations with Israel). The activity of Hollande’s government is demonstrated over various periods of time, which allows seeing the changes in the policy and the status of the diaspora. A conclusion is made on the predominant influence of the economic factors and the factor of political heterogeneity of the government throughout the President's policy. Possible solutions for the problem of anti-Semitism in France are proposed.
