The Rise of Islamophobia @ The Carter Center (Sept. 26, 2017)

Islamophobia and violent extremism are inextricably linked.

As Islamophobia continues to grip much of the Western world, join us in discussing the effects of stigmatizing Muslims and learn more about what The Carter Center and others are doing to help stem the tide of anti-Muslim hatred and discrimination.

Moderated by Dr. Houda Abadi, associate director of the Carter Center’s Conflict Resolution Program, panelists include:

- Dr. Suzanne Barakat: motivational speaker and the sister of Deah Barakat, one of three Muslims killed during a 2015 shooting in Chapel Hill

- Dr. Deepa Kumar: award-winning scholar and activist, and author of “Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire”

- Dr. Tariq Ramadan: contemporary Islamic studies scholar who was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world in 2004

Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering.

The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.

New 2017 Report on Islamophobia, UK

Two decades since Runnymede was first credited with coining the term 'Islamophobia' in our flagship 1997 report, we look at how the phenomenon has evolved over the past 20 years, and how it manifests itself today.

Download: Islamophobia: Still a challenge for us all

This anniversary report (released November 2017) brings together varied perspectives from leading thinkers on inequality and Muslims in Britain, unpacking issues such as integration, hate crime, gender, identity and, of course, racism.

The views expressed in each essay are those of the named authors and do not necessarily represent Runnymede's organisational position.

For Runnymede's own deeper analysis and re-definition of Islamophobia as 'anti-Muslim racism', see Part 1 of the report, separately downloadable from the link below.

Islamophobia: Executive Summary
Read this 3-page summary explanation of the constituent parts of the report, which sets out Runnymede's organisational position and aims in commissioning the anniversary report.

Islamophobia Part 1: Understanding

In this introductory section Runnymede's Farah Elahi and Dr Omar Khan examine what is understood by the term 'Islamophobia' and Dr Claire Alexander of the University of Manchester looks at 'Raceing Islamophobia', expanding on the definition of it as a form of racism.

Islamophobia Part 2: Mapping
In this section various authors map the evidence of modern-day Islamophobia and look at how it manifests itself across key areas, including education, employment, housing, health, hate crime, integration, gender, globalisation and the government's counter-terrorism programme 'Prevent'. 

Islamophobia Part 3: Different Conceptions 
Here, reflections on how Islamophobia is understood in relation to concepts such as identity, language, bigotry and Anti-Semitism are explored. Also, Dr Robin Richardson, the editor of the 1997 Islamophobia report, takes a look back at what it contained and the parts that still resonate today.

Muslim Students Fight Islamophobia in North America

The Muslim Student Association (MSA) in North America has launched an initiative to fight rising sentiments against Muslim communities in the United States and Canada.

The “United Against Islamophobia” campaign aims “to help build bridges of understanding between Muslim students and their diverse allies across college & university campuses throughout North America”, MSA said in a statement.

“We believe that standing up as inter-sectional allies for millions of young Muslim college and university students can help to address growing xenophobia and bigotry which is affecting millions of women, Latinos, African-American, LGBT and Jewish students around the world as well,” it said.

MSA National is a non-profit organization that strives to facilitate networking, educating, and empowering the students of today to be citizens   of tomorrow’s community, according to the group’s website...

Seattle Workshop Fights Islamophobia

SEATTLE – Seattle Muslims have organized a workshop to counter rising Islamophobic crimes targeting Muslim women in the US, promoting women safety and teaching them how to cooperate with police to protect themselves.

“We don’t know what our right, we don’t know what to do,” Farhiya Mohamed, executive director of the Somali Family Safety Taskforce, told q13fox on Sunday.

Mohamed is referring here to the new workshop called “Hijabs + Harassment” hosted on Sunday, March 25, in Seattle.

The idea of the workshop came to Mohamed’s mind when many women in the community started posing questions about what to do if someone yells a racial slur while they’re at a bus stop or physically attacks them because they’re wearing hijab. “So, I decided it was time to put together an educational workshop to address those concerns,” she explained.

The workshop organizers themselves have similarly experienced such Islamophobic assaults...
