Following on from my recent submission to the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Islamophobia, I thought that I’d make available in one place all of the various submissions I’ve made to government over the past two years – both to the APPG but so too the Cross-Government Working Group on Anti-Muslim Hate also.

As well as hopefully prompting debate and discussion, making these resources available will provide a lot of information relating to improving understanding Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hate as they cover ‘the basics’. So here goes:

Written evidence to the APPG on Islamophobia: Muslims, Islam and the British media

Written evidence relating to the representation of Muslims and Islam in the British media submitted to the APPG on Islamophobia on 24th October 2012.

APPG on Antisemitism summary review report

A summary review of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Antisemitism’s report which was undertaken on behalf of the Cross-Government Working Group on Anti-Muslim Hate (housed in the Department for Communities & Local Government) in May 2012. The review sought to inform the Working Group’s thinking in relation to realistic and tangible outcomes.

Written evidence to the APPG on Islamophobia: APPG relaunch

An overview document that sets out answers to key questions – what is Islamophobia, does it exist, what evidence is currently available etc – which was supported by oral evidence at the APPG’s relaunch in November 2011. The document also sets out a number of recommendations.

  1. The problem with informing the Government about Islamophobia & Anti-Muslim hate is that many are taking advantage and claiming racial hate when there was no racial hatred. It’s even seen in football… the UK has issues that need addressing

    1. Would love to see your evidence to support this…feel free to send me the link to the report, publication etc as this is often suggested but never substantiated.
