Abstract:

"The word Islamophobia was first used in print in 1991 and was defined in the 1997 Runnymede Trust report as 'unfounded hostility towards Islam, and therefore fear or dislike of all or most Muslims'. This follow-up report seven years on considers events and trends since 1997 and outlines essential things that still need to be done." "This report describes the nature of Islamophobia in modern Britain and the impact of September 11 and the ensuing wars. It stresses that a major challenge is to build constructive ways of airing disagreements and engaging in debate. It looks at four main areas of social, political and cultural life: recognition of Muslim identities in the census and the legal system; tasks facing schools; community cohesion at street and neighbourhood level and ways of affecting media coverage." "Islamophobia - issues, challenges and action will be an invaluable practical guide for years to come and will be of interest to a wide range of professionals in education, government, law and the media."--BOOK JACKET.
