Innovate Walsall CIC, cordially invites you to a panel event entitled “Islamophobia: Challenges & Opportunities” with keynote speaker, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, alongside Professor Francis Davies, and another, followed by Q&A and meet & greet.
Innovate Walsall CIC promotes community integration and challenges all forms of hatred in Walsall, The Black Country and the surrounding West Midlands region.
Incidences of hate crime have spiraled since the Brexit vote in 2016. The rise of Islamophobia in particular is causing concern both in Britain and abroad. We have brought together a panel of experts to discuss the nature of the issue, how it is proliferating and what can be done to effectively counter it.
Considering the vast experience and expertise of the speakers, this panel event promises to be both eye-opening and thought-provoking.
About the speakers
- Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, former Foreign Office and Communities Minister; former Chairman of the Conservative Party; and author of “The Enemy Within: A Tale of Muslim Britain”.
- Professor Francis Davies, Professor of Religion, Communities and Public Policy at University of Birmingham.
