Key recommendations to tackle Islamophobia from a coalition of civil society organisations

ENAR and a coalition of civil society organisations working against Islamophobia have issued key recommendations, on the occasion of an EU high-level conference on tackling intolerance and discrimination against Muslims organised by the European Commission.

3 December 2018

We welcome the high-level conference on tackling intolerance and discrimination against Muslims in the EU organised by the European Commission today and the opportunity to tackle the issue comprehensively, while recognising civil society stakeholders as key partners with unique expertise. While there has been recognition of the issue at European Union level, obstacles remain as evidenced by the Fundamental Rights Agency’s report on Muslims and by the European Islamophobia report. European institutions and EU Member States need to strengthen and secure their mandate and actions to tackle Islamophobia, especially in these times of political transition.

As civil society, we have highlighted the following objectives that can be reached through specific actions, in close consultation, cooperation and full transparency with civil society experts. These are addressed to Member States and the European Institutions.
