Anti-Muslim Hate Crime

The Centre of Islamic Studies convened a one-day meeting in June 2015 to discuss anti-Muslim hate crime in the UK. The meeting was intended to bring together experts from the academy, government, the police and the voluntary sector to share ideas about the nature and impact of anti-Muslim hate crime. To encourage participants to speak freely, the meeting was closed to members of the public, but a handful of interested participants were invited to contribute from the floor. The proceedings were recorded, but instead of publishing a summary of the wide ranging discussions that took place – as is the general practice in research sponsored by the Centre of Islamic Studies – it was decided in the end to produce a summary of some of the formal presentations only. We are grateful to the participants who allowed us to use their research to produce this report.
