Dr Chris Allen 

Approaching Islamophobia from a Human Rights Perspective

Chris Allen is a Lecturer in the Institute of Applied Social Studies at the University of Birmingham. For the past decade and a half, he has been undertaking research into the phenomenon of Islamophobia. This has included researching the experience of Muslim women who are victims of Islamophobic hate crimes, opposition to the building of mosques, and the role of the far-right in promoting anti- Muslim hate. As well as publishing widely and appearing in the media regularly, he was until recently an independent member of the Government’s Anti-Muslim Hate Working Group.

This lecture is organised in partnership with the Equality and Human Rights Commission in Wales.
