Committee calls for further evidence on Islamophobia

13 December 2018

The Home Affairs Committee has put out a further call for written evidence on Islamophobia, as part of its ongoing work on hate crime.

This comes amidst increasing numbers of Islamophobic hate crimes, and follows publication of a report by the All Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims calling for the adoption of an official working definition of Islamophobia.

The Committee has already taken evidence on the roles of the print media, social media, and the far-right, and so would welcome further evidence on:

  • The current extent of Islamophobia in British society
  • The impact of official adoption of a definition of Islamophobia
  • The role of politics

Written submissions

Written submissions are normally published on the Committee's website. If it is necessary to include personal experiences in your submission, or you have concerns about your submission being made public, please contact for advice before submitting. Further guidance on making a submission is available here.

The deadline for written submissions has been extended to Monday 28 January 2019.             .

  • Send a written submission to the Committee's inquiry into Islamophobia
