Abstract: Publisher's description: This publication looks at how the educational community in various nations is coming to grips with increased societal hostility towards Islam as a belief system and towards their Muslim populations. It examines the issue of Islamophobia, or fear of Islam, from a variety of perspectives. The background and academic articles help to contextualise this phenomenon, but the main thrust of the book is on educational practice and how schools, teachers, and students are coping with the stereotypes, prejudices and discrimination that are building up against Islam and its followers.
Internal Notes: This publication describes the situation in the countries outside the OSCE region.
