This is empirical work which connects policy, Prevent training and actual Prevent referrals. The purpose is to operationalise Islamophobia as a systemic issue BEYOND overt verbal and physical abuse (hate crime). The key term I would like to bridge in to policies in the War on Terror, especially as we enter 2020, is colour-blindness. I explain how gov efforts to mitigate Islamophobia by pushing CVE towards ‘far-right’ or employing more Muslims doesn’t help—it makes things worse. The paper is unfortunately not open access but do let me know if you’d like to read it. This is a post summarising its content, and I explain its significance given the recent UK election results.
