“Muslims in the European Union: Discrimination and Islamophobia” is a report by the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) on the situation of Muslims in the Member States of the European Union.
The Report "Muslims in the European Union: Discrimination and Islamophobia" is accompanied by a study on "Perceptions of discrimination and Islamophobia", which is based on in-depth interviews with members of Muslim communities in ten EU Member States. This study provides a snapshot of the opinions, feelings, fears, frustrations, and also the hopes for the future shared by many Muslims in the EU.
Concern about the reported rise in Antisemitism and Islamophobia in Europe following the September 11 terrorist attacks against the US, led the Agency together with the European Commission to organise a series of Round Tables on these themes.
Following the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001, the Agency asked its National Focal Points for a series of country reports on potential anti-Islamic reactions in the then 15 EU Member States. Key findings are summarised in a synthesis report on "Islamophobia in the EU after September 11".
