About this event
A recent report on experiences of Islamophobia in Edinburgh schools, based on research by parent and community activist, Samena Dean, raised serious concerns. Among them, a high prevalence of Islamophobia being encountered by the Muslim children surveyed, and a perceived failure on the part of schools to act or respond appropriately to incidents.
This seminar is being organised in an effort to raise awareness of this issue and help schools to take a front line approach to tackling Islamophobia and other forms of hatred in a sensitive and appropriate manner.
- Understanding children’s experiences of Islamophobia and the impact this has on them
- Identifying and responding to Islamophobia and other forms of hatred in an appropriate manner.
