Professor Jack Jacobs

Jack Jacobs is Professor of Political Science at John Jay College and the Graduate Centre, City University of New York, USA. For the duration of his Visiting Fellowship he is hosted by Birkbeck, University of London.
Project status

During his time in the UK, Professor Jacobs will conduct research on a project entitled Antisemitism, Racism, and the Left: International Perspectives. His intent is to study the degree, if any, to which recent relationships between the British Labour Party and much of British Jewry may be explained by reference to overarching, internationally evident trends, rather than local events and personalities. He will focus on the attitudes of contemporary British Jews towards the British Labour Party.
