Even though Germany last year cut ties with “Islamic Relief Germany” over the organization’s Muslim Brotherhood links and its leaders’ antisemitic statements, the EU continues to provide financial support to the group.

AJC invites you to a timely discussion on the rise of extremism in Europe and the integrity of the EU’s funding standards. Panelists include: Nicola Beer, Vice President of the EU Parliament; Monika Hohlmeier, Chair of the EU Parliament’s Budgetary Control Committee; and Michael Laubsch, Policy Analyst and Member of the European Citizens‘ Initiative STOP EXTREMISM. Michael Sieveking, AJC Transatlantic Institute Deputy Director, will moderate the discussion.
