VIDEO: Institutional Islamophobia Conference 2014

This video is from the December 2014 Institutional Islamophobia Conference, the first of IHRC’s annual Islamophobia conferences. Arzu Merali spoke of IHRC’s 17-year-long project of documenting anti-Muslim experiences and hate crime.

IHRC has never thought that victims should have to prove their oppressive experiences but IHRC has to advocate and prove to the state that these things are happening. The Domination Hate Model of Intercultural Relations – as used in IHRC’s project – is a way of analysing the relationship between individual acts of hate crime and the institutions that help perpetuate and instigate them.
