Seit dem 11. September 2011 – und insbesondere seit dem Mord an Theo van Gogh – wurden Muslime und der Islam in öffentlichen Diskussionen immer wieder in ein schlechtes Licht gerückt. Erscheinungsformen der Islamophobie finden sich im Internet, in Kommentaren der PVV und in Gewalttaten gegen Moscheen. Niederländische Anti-Diskriminierungsstrategien geraten unter Druck, nun da sich diese Ideologie ins Zentrum der politischen Ebene vorgearbeitet hat. Wie kommen negative Konnotationen bezogen auf Muslime zustande? Wo finden Gewalttaten statt? Stehen die Niederlande tatsächlich an vorderster Front im Clash of civilizations wie es von Politikern, Meinungsbildnern und anderen auf internationaler Ebene behauptet wurde? Oder handelt es sich dabei um einen Ausschlussmechanismus? Die Autorin vertritt die Auffassung, dass Veränderungen im politischen Klima nur vollständig verstanden werden können, wenn der Rassismus, die Ideologie und die Sprache in die Analyse miteinbezogen werden. Ihre Untersuchung der Islamophobie und Diskriminierung bestand in einer Studie entsprechender Literatur, einer Analyse von Dokumenten sowie der Sammlung von Daten über Gewalt gegen Moscheen.

Mediendiskurs Islam

​ Verbreitete Analyseraster wie ‚Feindbild Islam‘ werden der Vielschichtigkeit des medialen Islamdiskurses nicht gerecht. Tim Karis entwickelt daher eine diskursanalytische Methodik, die Ambiguitäten und Dynamiken in den Bildern und Narrativen des Fernsehens in den Blick nimmt. Er zeigt, dass das Islambild der Medien nicht eindimensional ist, sondern sich aus kontingenten und teils konkurrierenden Deutungsmustern zusammensetzt, die sich historisch wandeln. ​

Islamophobia And Everyday Multiculturalism In Australia

This book explores Islamophobia in Australia, shifting attention from its victims to its perpetrators by examining the visceral, atavistic nature of people’s feelings and responses to the Muslim ‘other’ in everyday life. Based on ethnographic fieldwork, Islamophobia and Everyday Multiculturalism sheds light on the problematisations of Muslims amongst Anglo and non-Anglo Australians, investigating the impact of whiteness on minorities’ various reactions to Muslims. Advancing a micro-interactional, ethnographically oriented perspective, the author demonstrates the ways in which Australia’s histories and logics of racial exclusion, thinking and expression produce processes in which whiteness socializes, habituates and ‘teaches’ ‘racialising’ behaviour, and shows how national and global events, moral panics, and political discourse infiltrate everyday encounters between Muslims and non-Muslims, producing distinct structures of feeling and discursive, affective and social practices of Islamophobia. As such, it will be of interest to social scientists with interests in race and ethnicity, migration and diaspora and Islamophobia.

Islamophobia And Psychiatry

The book begins by covering the general and clinical challenges that are unique to Muslims, drawing from an internationally, ethnically, and intergenerationally diverse pool of experts. The text covers not only how psychiatrists and other clinicians can intervene successfully with patients, but how we as clinicians can have a role in addressing other societally connected mental health challenges arising from Islamophobia. The text addresses three related but distinct areas of interest: Islamophobia as a destructive force, Islam as a religion that is threatened by stigma and misinformation, and the novel intersection of these forces with the field of psychiatry. Islamophobia and Psychiatry is a vital resource for all clinicians and clinicians in training who may encounter patients struggling with these issues, including adult and child psychiatrists, psychologists, primary care physicians, counselors, social workers, and others.

In an era when many Americans wonder whether Islam and the West inherently must clash, "Islamophobia" explores how this view in part derives from centuries-old stereotypes of Muslims as violent, oppressive, and intolerant.

A Fundamental Fear

The fear and anxiety aroused by Islamism is not a myth, nor is it simply a consequence of terrorism or fundamentalism. Writing in 1997, before 9/11 and before the austerity that has bred a new generation of far right groups across Europe and the US, S. Sayyid warned of a spectre haunting Western civilization. This groundbreaking book, banned by the Malaysian government, is both an analysis of the conditions that have made ‘Islamic fundamentalism’ possible and a provocative account of the ways in which Muslim identities have come to play an increasingly political role throughout the world. This is a pioneering, provocative and intricately crafted study, which shows the challenge of Islamism is not only geopolitical or even cultural but also epistemological.

If God Were A Human Rights Activist

We live in a time when the most appalling social injustices and unjust human sufferings no longer seem to generate the moral indignation and the political will needed both to combat them effectively and to create a more just and fair society. If God Were a Human Rights Activist aims to strengthen the organization and the determination of all those who have not given up the struggle for a better society, and specifically those that have done so under the banner of human rights. It discusses the challenges to human rights arising from religious movements and political theologies that claim the presence of religion in the public sphere. Increasingly globalized, such movements and the theologies sustaining them promote discourses of human dignity that rival, and often contradict, the one underlying secular human rights. Conventional or hegemonic human rights thinking lacks the necessary theoretical and analytical tools to position itself in relation to such movements and theologies; even worse, it does not understand the importance of doing so. It applies the same abstract recipe across the board, hoping that thereby the nature of alternative discourses and ideologies will be reduced to local specificities with no impact on the universal canon of human rights. As this strategy proves increasingly lacking, this book aims to demonstrate that only a counter-hegemonic conception of human rights can adequately face such challenges.
