As anti-Muslim hatred rises in Europe and North America as well as other satellite states, this panel presents compelling theoretical and empirical work on the phenomenon. The crisis unfolding as a result of this rise can be mapped in many ways, but the overall impact bodes ill for democracy and democratic values – Islamophobia does not just affect Muslims, it strikes at the heart of what it means to be democratic.
Venue: Room XXIV, UN Palais des Nations
Time: 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
Date: 17 September 2014
The panel will be streamed live HERE
