Invitation to Seminar on Institutional Bias against Minorities and Islamophobia in Britain , 12 June London

IHRC extends an open invitation to its upcoming seminar entitled “Discriminating against the Discriminated: Institutional Bias against Minorities in the UK ” which will use the example of Islamophobia in Britain to highlight the issue.

The seminar will look at the situation of minorities and structural issues affecting them in their interaction with the law and law enforcement bodies, using the empirical work we have undertaken regarding Muslims in the UK, and the theoretical overview we published regarding minorities, that is consolidated in volumes 2 and 5 of the British Muslims’ Expectations of the Government series. Summarized versions of these publications can be downloaded at the links below. Full reports can be ordered from www.ihrc.org.uk/catalog or by contacting the office, info@ihrc.org or 020 8904 4222.
