IRR News 23-29 November 2012

Written by: admin

Dear IRR News Subscriber,

This week the IRR’s Jon Burnett looks at a spate of recent anti-Muslim attacks against a backdrop of mainstreamed Islamophobic sentiment. A new study suggests that racism is a ‘significant issue’ in Wales, with many incidents not reported to the police. And an MP in Keighley has been criticised for ‘racialising’ the sexual exploitation of children.

For the next few weeks Harmit Athwal is on leave and IRR News will be providing a somewhat reduced service.
