Institutionalised: the rise of Islamophobia in higher education

Akel, Sofia (2021) Institutionalised: the rise of Islamophobia in higher education. Project Report. London Metropolitan University, London.


Institutionalised: The Rise of Islamophobia in Higher Education is a comprehensive report that examines the complexities and manifestations of Islamophobia throughout the higher education sector. It seeks to examine the experiences of both Muslim students and staff. The report draws on seminal sector data that allows, for the first time, intersectional analysis across both race and religion. Additionally, shared lived experience forms the heart of the research, centring the voices of Muslims in the sector.

Furthermore, Institutionalised also comprises original primary research that specifically examines Islamophobia at London Metropolitan University, mapping the ways in which religious and racial discrimination can impact key junctures of the staff and student lifecycle. A series of non-exhaustive recommendations are presented, enabling the University to directly act upon the findings.

The report has been written with accessibility in mind, therefore Institutionalised offers in-depth background into Islamophobia, catering to those who may know little about this form of discrimination, to those who may be well versed.
