Programme / Speakers Bios

Two panels of experts will look at how education, the legal system and the PREVENT / Counter-terrorism regime coalesce to create an environment of hate that facilitates the operation of a de facto Police State. In this state citizens are either living in fear and self-censorship, or full and knowing complicity, or exceptionalist complacency or a combination of some or all of the aforesaid. Whilst the primary targets and victims of hateful discourse, discrimination and state and street violence are Muslims, everyone lives in this Environment and this State, many minoritised communities now feel a resurgence of hatred and everyone is impacted negatively.

IHRC and Scotland Against Criminalising Communities are collaborating for this year's Islamophobia Conference. Please keep an eye for updates on the conference in Edinburgh.
