Islamophobia: Still a Challenge for Us All

A 20th-Anniversary Report

Edited by: Farah Elahi and Omar Khan

Publisher: Runnymede (November 2017)

Colleagues may be interested in the launch of this new Runnymede Trust anniversary report on Islamophobia, which ‘brings together varied perspectives from leading thinkers on inequality and Muslims in Britain, unpacking issues such as integration, hate crime, gender, identity and, of course, racism’. Two decades since Runnymede was first credited with coining the term 'Islamophobia' in our flagship 1997 report, we look at how the phenomenon has evolved over the past 20 years, and how it manifests itself today.

This anniversary report (released November 2017) brings together varied perspectives from leading thinkers on inequality and Muslims in Britain, unpacking issues such as integration, hate crime, gender, identity and, of course, racism.

Read this 3-page summary explanation of the constituent parts of the report, which sets out Runnymede's organizational position and aims in commissioning the anniversary report.

In this introductory section Runnymede's Farah Elahi and Dr Omar Khan examine what is understood by the term 'Islamophobia' and Dr Claire Alexander of the University of Manchester looks at 'Raceing Islamophobia', expanding on the definition of it as a form of racism.

In this section various authors map the evidence of modern-day Islamophobia and look at how it manifests itself across key areas, including education, employment, housing, health, hate crime, integration, gender, globalization and the government's counter-terrorism program 'Prevent'. 

Here, reflections on how Islamophobia is understood in relation to concepts such as identity, language, bigotry and Anti-Semitism are explored. Also, Dr Robin Richardson, the editor of the 1997 Islamophobia report, takes a look back at what it contained and the parts that still resonate today.
