Maleiha Malik (Law professor, King’s College, London) is here on a British Council grant. Her research and outreach focuses on minority rights in instances when tradition and secular modernity are in conflict. She is the go-to commentator on the topic for the BBC.

Her research interests include jurisprudence and legal theory, feminist theory and discrimination law. Her relevant publications include Discrimination Law: Theory and Context (2008) and Anti-Muslim Prejudice in the West - Past and Present.

This presentation explores anti-Muslim prejudice in Europe and the USA. It argues that it is important to understand the long standing tropes that cause us to misunderstand present day manifestations of Islam amongst European and American Muslims.  This talk also examines the political mobilisation against European and American Muslims that has been systematically organised through links between US and European political actors and institutions.
