Islamophobia and Anti-Muslim Hate Crime, 2010

Sponsored by Al Jazeera Centre for Studies, this is an introductory report that has a prime research focus on the experience of Muslims as victims of violence, intimidation and discrimination in the UK. As such it serves as a template for our ongoing research in the UK and also our forthcoming research across Europe on the same topic. At the same time the report offers academic and general  readers an immediate insight into the grim reality of a lived experience that is insufficiently acknowledged and understood outside of the communities where it occurs. Such a widespread lack of recognition of the problem of anti-Muslim violence, intimidation and discrimination in the UK strikes us as all the more remarkable at a time when mainstream media in the UK has been rather more forthcoming in its coverage of identical anti-Muslim violence, intimidation and discrimination in the US arising from the furore over the so called Ground Zero Mosque.
