Report: State Dept to Name Special Envoy for Anti-Semitism Monitoring

The State Department aims to select a special envoy to monitor and combat anti-semitism as part of the 2004 Global Anti-Semitism Review Act, Government Executive reported Wednesday.

The incumbent will collaborate with the department’s bureau of democracy, human rights and labor to generate annual summaries of human rights strategies and international religious freedom.

The report noted the Senate has also asked the White House to resubmit approximately 200 previous nominations that were not approved including ambassadorships, managerial roles, Foreign Service Officer positions along with a United Nations alternative representative, for the second session of the 115th Congress.

“The Trump administration considers the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism to be a crucial position, and hopes to announce an appointment soon,” an unnamed State Department executive told Government Executive.
