Dr Irene Antonopoulos:

Presented by the Leicester De Montfort Law School Research Seminar Series. From the 1970s onwards Islam has been connected to danger, hindering integration and not belonging to the Dutch moral community by politicians, opinion leaders and policy makers. In this paper Dr Martijn de Koning of the University of Amsterdam explores some of the historical and current responses of Muslim organisations to this racialisation of danger and focus in particular upon the recent reactions of three different platforms that centre around the idea of security: the G4 (a co-operation between four major mosque organisations), Call Islamophobia (an anti-Islamophobia organisation) and Behind Bars (a former militant network). The seminar will analyse their responses and in particular the connections between their responses. It is open to staff, students and the public, and is chaired by Dr Rajnaara Akhtar.
