The Counter-Islamophobia Kit project documents and critically analyses dominant Islamophobic narratives in operation, and also counter-Islamophobia narratives and related best practices employed in eight EU member states (Belgium, the UK, France, Germany, Hungary, Greece, Portugal, and the Czech Republic) in order to produce the Counter-Islamophobia Kit. This Toolkit identifies and postulates narratives, arguments, strategies and actions that will be able to directly counter Islamophobia and set guidelines on best practice aimed at countering this form of racism.
The CIK Project Knowledge Exchange event aims to present the results of the Counter-Islamophobia Kit Project related to the Belgian context, as well as to present the Key Messages to counter Islamophobia for the national audience. Moreover, actors engaged in countering Islamophobia throughout Belgium will discuss these results and best practices in combating Islamophobia tailored to the national context.
The CIK Project Knowledge Exchange event will gather academics, experts, journalists, activists, and policy makers interested in, and dealing with Islamophobia. The EFJ GS Ricardo Gutiérrez will attend the seminar.
Participation is free of charge, and the event will be held in English and French.
