Key findings

The European Islamophobia Report provides an EU wide and a country-by-country annual monitoring of Islamophobia in Europe. The 2018 report aims to "investigate in detail the underlying dynamics that directly or indirectly support the rise of anti-Muslim racism in Europe. This extends from Islamophobic statements spread in national media to laws and policies that restrain the fundamental rights of European Muslim citizens. As a result, the European Islamophobia Report 2018 discusses the impact of anti-Muslim discourse on human rights, multiculturalism, and the state of law in Europe."
