On Tuesday 10th June 2014, I was invited to participate in a roundtable meeting on the issue of Islamophobia in today’s Europe. Held in Stockholm, the event was facilitated by the Swedish government and brought together a range of individuals from across Europe: policymakers, civil servants, civil society representatives, Muslim organisations and academics.
Where these type of events go and what emerges from them is always a little vague and unclear, and so at the moment I would suggest that we’re still in the ‘wait & see’ period.
Nonetheless, there has been a summary report produced by the Swedish government which I thought I’d make more widely available.
Personally, I’m not sure the summary report does the discussions any justice given that on paper, it all feels a little too positive and dare I say it, abstract.
Still, it’s worth sharing if for no other reason but to ensure the issue of Islamophobia remains in the public and political domains.
