The Rise of Islamophobia (Sept. 26, 2017)

Islamophobia and violent extremism are inextricably linked. As Islamophobia continues to grip much of the Western world, join us in discussing the effects of stigmatizing Muslims and learn more about what The Carter Center and others are doing to help stem the tide of anti-Muslim hatred and discrimination.

Panelists:

  • Dr. Suzanne Barakat: motivational speaker and the sister of Deah Barakat, one of three Muslims killed during a 2015 shooting in Chapel Hill
  • Dr. Deepa Kumar: award-winning scholar and activist, and author of “Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire”
  • Dr. Tariq Ramadan: contemporary Islamic studies scholar who was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world in 2004
