During the Brexit debates, the foreground supporters of Brexit used a hostile, xenophobic, discriminatory and racist discourse and actions against the Muslims and foreigners living in the United Kingdom (UK). Following the Brexit process and the recent wave of migrants to the country, xenophobia and Islamophobia became an acute risk and a threat to the peace, stability and multiculturalism in the UK.

On December 15, 2016 SETA will organize a panel in London/ UK in cooperation with British Institute of Turkish Affairs (BITAF). In this event, findings of the past year’s European Islamophobia Report and the events related to Islamophobia happened so far in the UK following Brexit will be discussed.

Panellists of the event will include Dr. Enes Bayraklı from SETA, Farid Hafez from Salzburg University,Aleksandra Lewicki from Freie Universität Berlin, and Dr. Salman Said from Leeds University.

The event will serve to draw attention to the rising level of Islamophobia in the UK after Brexit.

We would be honoured to have you at our event.
