On the occasion of the European Day against Islamophobia, held on the 21st of September, several events will tackle the issue from different perspectives:
FEMYSO, the pan-European network of national Muslim youth and Muslim students’ organizations covering more than 20 European countries that helped to create this European Day, is organising an event in Brussels that will gather representatives and civil society organizations working on youth, education, and discrimination to “explore more in depth the different forms through which Islamophobia can occur, with a specific attention to the “youth” component.
The European Islamophobia Report 2021, edited by Enes Bayrakli and Farid Hafez, will be released on the 21st of September.
The report is to be presented on the 21st of September in an online event (5:00 PM – 6:30 PM CET) hosted by the European Network on Religion and Belief with the participation of the editors of the report and some co-authors. Register here
Several debates in Brussels and Liege will be organised by Le Collectif pour l’Inclusion et contre l’Islamophobie en Belgique (CIIB), a MAGIC consortium’s partner, to offer a space for open discussion about the state of Islamophobia in Belgium and how Muslim women are being covered in Belgian media outlets (with insights coming from the MAGIC research).
