Mathias Rohe at expert seminar on preventing and combating anti-Muslim racism
Prof Mathias Rohe, speaker of the Independent Expert Commission on anti-Muslim sentiment in Germany was a guest at a conference of the Council of Europe on preventing and combating anti-Muslim racism and discrimination on June 7. Rohe drew attention to the structural experiences of discrimination that Muslims face in the labour and rental markets. However, terms such as Islamophobia do not adequately describe unconscious mechanisms of exclusion. In order to achieve equal rights for all, these forms of discrimination should also be covered explicitly.
