Cultural cleansing?

Cultural cleansing?


Written by: Harmit Athwal

As concern mounts about the rise of Islamophobia in Europe, the Winter 2008 issue of the Institute of Race Relations’ European Race Bulletin provides a snapshot of the mosaic of campaigns against Muslim places of worship and religious symbols across Europe.

Issue no. 62 of the European Race Bulletin includes information on:

  • Over thirty local campaigns against mosque and minaret building, schools and the Qur’an;
  • Over twenty local or national initiatives on religious clothing;
  • Islamaphobic, anti-Roma or anti-asylum-seeker campaigns mounted in seventeen countries.
