2017 marks twenty years since the publication of Runnymede Trust’s Commission on British Muslims and Islamophobia. Runnymede launched their latest report exploring the impact of Islamophobia on British Muslims.
The report set out a framework that maps Islamophobia as a form of anti-Muslim racism and explores its impact on individuals and communities. It included contributions from a wide range of academics and experts, including chapters on the labour market, hate crime, prevent, civil society, gender, health, integration and more.
Speakers included Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, Miqdaad Versi, Farah Elahi and Omar Khan. The event included a lively Q&A session and the report can be read here.
