Counter-Islamophobia Kit

Welcome to the Counter-Islamophobia Kit (CIK) project website. This two year project is funded by the European Commission – Directorate of Justice, and brings together experts from across Europe.

The project will critically review dominant anti-Muslim narratives, and also compare the use and efficacy of prevailing counter-narratives to Islamophobia in eight European Union member states (France, Germany, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Portugal, Greece and the UK).

Findings based on normative patterns of Islamophobia and effective counter-narratives to anti-Muslim hatred in each case will inform the production of a transferable ‘Counter-Islamophobia Kit’ (CIK), which aims to detail best-practice in countering anti-Muslim hate across the continent. The key messages contained within the CIK will be aimed at policy makers, professionals and practitioners from across the EU.
