The Islamic Human Rights Commission and Scotland Against Criminalising Communties are twinning for the second annual Islamophobia conference on Saturday 12 December 2015. London’s Islamophobia conference, titled the Changing Face of Islamophobia, will look at how Islamophobia is a form of racism. Details for Edinburgh’s Islamophobia conference will be released shortly.
The conference in 2014, Institutional Islamophobia, focused on analysing institutional and structural forms of prejudice and hatred. Academics and activists from all over the UK attended the event, to take part in a discussion with an international panel of speakers.
This year we hope to discuss how Islamophobia has evolved from and replaced biological racism from the colonial period. We will also place Islamophobia within the wider xenophobic narrative currently on the rise in Europe. Furthermore, the aim of the conference is to develop a discussion around ways we can articulate why Islamophobia is racism and how we can utilise this to fight against the rise of racism in Britain and Europe.
Confirmed speakers include:
Roshan Muhammed Salih
Confirmed supporting organisations include:
African & Caribbean Diversity
Campaign Against Criminalising Communities
Decolonising Our Minds Society
NUS Black Students
Lewisham Islamic Centre
The Muslim Directory
Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC)
202 Preston Road, Wembley, HA9 8PA
