THE RISE OF XENOPHOBIA and ISLAMOPHOBIA IN EUROPE
British Institute of Turkish Affairs, SETA European Studies Directorate and SOAS Turkish Society are pleased to announce a special panel discussion on the topic of “THE RISE OF XENOPHOBIA and ISLAMOPHOBIA IN EUROPE” at SOAS University of London. The event panellists are Dr Enes Bayrakli, Director of European Studies of SETA, Dr Farid Hafez from the University of Salzburg, Dr Aleksandra Lewicki from the University of Berlin and Professor Salman Said from the University of Leeds.
During the last debates in Europe, xenophobic, discriminatory and racist discourse and actions against the foreigners and Muslims living in many countries of the European Union. Following the Elections in the USA, Brexit process in the UK and the recent wave of migrants to the country, xenophobia and Islamophobia became an acute risk and a threat to the peace, stability and multiculturalism in the EU.
To increase the awareness towards Islamophobia, in 2016 SETA started to publish an annual report, namely “European Islamophobia Report”, which covers the Islamophobia and related events in approximately 25 European countries.
On November 15, 2016, SETA and British Institute of Turkish Affairs (BITAF) will organise a panel in London/ UK. In this event, findings of the past year’s European Islamophobia Report and the events related to Xenophobia and Islamophobia happened so far in Europe.
The event will serve to draw attention to the rising level of Xenophobia and Islamophobia in the EU.
We would be honoured to have you at our event.
