This important meeting will discuss the various forms and consequences of the rise of Islamophobia, and the ways to challenge and defeat it.

Among various other consequences of this anti-Muslim prejudice, violence and discrimination, it has also severely damaged and limited the humanitarian response to the refugee crisis which was largely caused by Western interventions, occupations and subsequent wars. Obscenely, the UK government has deported thousands of child refugees back to the war zones of Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria (including the war-ravaged city of Aleppo). Islamophobia produces heartlessness even towards child victims of war.
