The Nottingham Trent University invited our MEND Midlands Regional Manager Robina Ruby Begum to attend a panel discussion exploring Islamophobia in Higher Education.
Our Midlands Manager was accompanied by other panelists including: Dr Irene Zempi, Farzeen Heesambee (student) and Nader Haider (student).
The session itself was attended by Muslim and non-Muslim students and staff alike to discuss issues they and their Muslim peers face at university concerning Islamophobia.
Dr. Irene Zempi and Robina Begum discussed contemporary definitions of Islamophobia, Universities UK Report on Changing the Culture especially around tackling religious-based hate, how we can identify Islamophobia in a University context, and where Muslim students at NTU can find the help and support they need.
Both student speakers, Farzeen and Nader shared their experiences in higher education as Muslim students, opening the floor for conversations to take place to overcome Islamophobia in Higher Education.
