Populist Politics & the Minority Voice


About The Event

Date: April 19, 2018

Venue: King’s College London, Strand, London, WC2R 2LS, UK

A one-day Muslims in Britain Research Network (MBRN) conference organized in partnership with the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, King’s College London (KCL), University of London.

This one-day conference on ‘Populist politics and the minority voice’ will discuss the effects of these changes on British Muslims, and how the concerns of British Muslims relate to those of other minority groups as well as wider debates about the future of liberal states, free speech and ‘fake news’. Since at least the 1970s, British Muslims – as a group and alongside other minorities – have been involved in a struggle for rights, for media and political representation and for recognition.

– What might these struggles look like in the future? What is the future of British Muslim identity, post-Brexit?
– How might rights and legal accommodations be affected by withdrawal from the EU?
– How do concerns about rising Islamophobia intersect with concerns about resurgent anti-Semitism and far-right and populist movements?
– How should debates about Muslims and the media proceed in an era of ‘fake news’?
– How can standards of debate about minorities be preserved and what can higher education and Muslim institutions contribute?
