Black South West Network and the Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship at the University of Bristol would like to invite you to the Bristol launch of the Runnymede Trust’s new report exploring the impact of Islamophobia on British Muslims.

The report sets out a framework that maps Islamophobia as a form of anti-Muslim racism and explores its impact on individuals and communities. It includes 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. The event will be chaired by Dr. Therese O’Toole (Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship, University of Bristol) and Sado Jirde (Director of BSWN), and will explore the implications of the report for Bristol.

Speakers will include Professor Tariq Modood (Director, Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship), Dr. Omar Khan (Director, Runnymede Trust), Cllr. Asher Craig (Deputy Mayor of Bristol) and Sue Mountstevens (TBC Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner). There will also be a Q&A session and an opportunity to network.
