Description

From Pavement to Parliament: How the University works with communities to tackle Islamophobia

Since 2010, social scientists from UoB have been working with Parliamentarians and policymakers to inform and shape thinking about how to tackle Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hatred in the UK.

Led by Dr Chris Allen, Lecturer in Social Policy at University of Birmingham, this event is an opportunity to gain an insight into the policy process and how research with different communities supports this. The event will feature presentations by social science researchers who will showcase their work on Islamophobia, anti-Muslim hatred and other relevant issues.

The event will be followed by an open discussion where members of the public can ask questions and give their opinions on the key areas for future research and policy.

Date: Tue 19 Mar, 6-8pm

Venue: Learning Centre (R28 on map), LG14

Booking: Free admission, booking required. Please email h.m.a.harris@bham.ac.uk to reserve a place.
