A team of colleagues have just released a report that shares the findings and policy recommendations from their six-year-long project “Re/presenting Islam on Campus“. I wasn’t part of the original team, but I became quite closely involved in the project over the last two years and, in the end, named in several places of the research outputs.
The report has attracted a lot of media attention and heated debate within the span of a week alone. Too much to archive here, so I am just gonna list some of the pieces written by the team.
- Islam and Muslims on UK University Campuses: perceptions and challenges (Guest et al., 2020)
- Outside the Box [animation]
- Prevent doesn’t stop students being radicalised. It just reinforces Islamophobia (Scott-Baumann, The Guardian, 14 July 2020)
- The limits of inclusivity: Islamophobia in higher education (Guest, Open Democracy, 14 July 2020)
- Government policy has left Muslim students feeling unable to speak up on campus (Cheruvallil-Contractor, The Conversation, 15 July 2020)
I am not actively contributing to the online debate myself, but if I were to summarise the 68-page report, the title of this post would be it.
