Panel Discussion on the Islamophobia in Australia Report, Perth Launch
The Centre for Muslim States and Societies, the University of Western Australia, The Centre for Islamic Studies and Civilisation, Charles Sturt University, and the Islamophobia Register of Australia, invite you to a Panel Discussion on Islamophobia in Australia 2014-2016, the first-of-its-kind report in Australia.
Date: Thursday, 10th August 2017 Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm Venue: Fox Lecture Hall, Arts Building, the University of Western Australia
The report captures and critically analyses data collected by the Islamophobia Register of Australia from 2014-2015 reflecting Australian Muslims' lived Islamophobic experiences. The report also describes the historical, political and cultural aspects of Islamophobia, and examines the interplay of Islamophobia within the religious plane, the political sphere, media reporting, right-wing organizations and the field of criminology. This report is especially timely as there is a continuing debate over the existence and the scale of Islamophobia in Australia.
The panel will feature several brief talks by community leaders and university academics including Dr Derya Iner, report editor and senior lecturer at Charles Sturt University, and Professor Samina Yasmeen, Director at CMSS, UWA, who contributed to the report.
