The book presents a report about a form of racism that has
increased all over Europe since more than a decade. Muslims
and Islam have frequently been unfavourably portrayed at the
heart of public debate. Manifestations of Islamophobia can
be found on the Internet, in politics, in schools and in
acts of discrimination and violence committed against
mosques. Is the Netherlands the front line in the ‚clash of
civilisations‘, as has sometimes been claimed in the
international arena? Or is it all about an exclusion
mechanism? The report is based on a study of relevant
literature, an analysis of documents, and surveys among
secondary school teachers and administrators of mosques.
