    Islamophobia, or hatred of Muslims, has only recently become widely recognised. However, this phenomenon has existed since the beginning of Islam as a hostility that surfaced in literature, poetry, the visual arts, church sermons, poetry and in military campaigns. The recent recognition and identification of islamophobia means that comparatively little data is available on it (in contrast to antisemitism which has been well-documented for centuries).

    However, there can be no denying that the position of Muslims in European societies is under extreme pressure due to inflammatory discourse. Moreover, public opinion is often fed with generalised and prejudicial messages about Islam and its followers.

    The Religious Diversity and Anti-Discrimination training programme provides an educational process that transforms obstacles presented by different perspectives on religion into opportunities for social transformation.

    Participants are encouraged and aided to reflect on, and then share, their own perspectives with regards to religion, faith, and belief systems, including those who have a secular or no faith background. As a result, many participants report that they feel empowered to engage with the topics in a new and motivating way.

    This is the core programme in the Belieforama suite and is a pre-requisite for all thematic programmes.
