Register: Register for the workshop
Speaker / organizer: The Swedish Civil Society Network Against Anti-Muslim Racism. Dr. Farid Hafez, political scientist and co-editor of the annual European Islamophobia Report
About: Muslim civil society and Muslim faith communities throughout Europe are increasingly being subjected to suspicion and hostility from politicians and public authorities, this having a real negative impact on the ability for practicing Muslims to participate in active and positive ways in society, shrinking the public space. Relating to different European contexts, with Sweden as a special case study, this workshop not only highlights some recent examples of this, but also looks at ways of countering the trend by means of interfaith cooperation.
